Mrs Michelle Obama x Anna Wilding x Marc Craig
This unique collaboration of Anna Wilding and Marc Craig, a 1/1 rare artwork, of former First Lady Mrs Michelle Obama, based on one of Anna Wilding's iconic photographs from her touring art gallery and museum exhibit Celebrate Hope Obama Collection explores Mrs Obama's stunning and dynamic energy as she inhabited the White House with her husband President Barack Obama. Mrs Obama was incredible with children, earning her the nickname Hugger in Chief.
Not only was Anna Wilding witness to Mrs Obama's stunning work in the White House but Anna also, through her candid and well thought out portraiture, helped shape the narrative that helped make Mrs Obama the incredible icon she is today.
The photograph of Anna Wilding and the doodles of British street artist Marc Craig entice the viewer to zoom in closely to the artwork to see the incredible and detailed artistry it presents and thereby give us additional moment to pause and reflect on the presence of Mrs Michelle Obama, and the legacy she has created with her husband President Barack Obama in particular her work with children and women's and girls education worldwide. Anna Wilding also witnessed first hand that Mrs Obama was also very active with Dr Jill Biden and their Joining Forces initiative to help military families and spouses.
The many colorful doodles reminds us of the color and life and service Mrs Obama bought to the White House, by way of invited guests and her constant referring to the fact that the White House was indeed the "people's house"
An abundance of artists, musicians, film makers, and children would enter it's door during their administration. The Kitchen Garden was Mrs Obama's initiative and saw hundreds of inner city school children learn about growing healthy food.
Anna Wilding's exhibit Celebrate Hope brings viewers inside the walls of the White House and to the hearts of the Obama's , in the most intimate of ways with guests to her exhibit often remarking that it is like being there. Thousands have been to the exhibit and laughed and cried.
