NEW YORK CITY, NY
“The mission for my bust was to capture all of the flavors that define our 44th President, Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. Flavors that I can imagine have informed his life and some of the decisions he has made as a man and as the President of the United States of America. Some of those life lessons include a respect for all people while acknowledging the common threads that unite us: a need for education, equality and purpose in our lives.”
