This collaboration was months in the making. This unique large format 1/1 rare artwork, based on one of Anna Wilding's iconic photographs "When an Invitation Wasn't a Question" explores the colors that make up President Obama's incredible life and leadership.

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 stunning life of President Obama.

Reminiscent of complex aboriginal paintings, the doodles cartoon figures, at times almost seem like spacewomen and men that appear to jump out to delight and remind us and enforce the inherent humor in this significant and well known photograph.

Anna Wilding did interview, for a film she directed, the astronauts of the STS 133 space shuttle and 3 years later coincidentally bumped into one of the astronauts, at the Obama White House. Therefore it is reminder that a Presidential legacy often stretches from our fruitful lush earth to the planets above. In fact President Obama administration was keenly focused on implementing stem initiatives which no doubt has contributed to the current progression in space , tech and and science, and indeed this very NFT space.

Most of all this artwork, as in Anna Wilding's original photograph and her entire work of the Obama administration portrays the humanity and dignity of President Obama and that is inherent in all of us.
