I have the pleasure to announce today that one of my Obama portraits, “Yes We Can”, has been chosen as a book cover. And what a book!
A book called
Odes et Chansons Africaines
en Hommage a Barack Obama
(African Odes and songs, in homage to Barack Obama)
A book written by Marcelline Sibylle Ngono Bene, Doctor in Literature and African Civilisations, Master of Conferences at The University of Yaoundé and General Inspector of Academic Matters at the Ministry of Higher Education.
I adore the fact that my portrait serves this aim, and it will be a very emotional moment for me when I receive my dedicated copy…
I hope I will be able then to translate some of them in English. In fact, I am waiting to get it to see if a translation from French to English of the whole book could be possible. I am quite sure that a lot of people in the world would be interested in the content…
My special thanks to Emmanuel Baliyanga -a great artist himself by the way, check here- in charge of the book design and who found and chose my portrait.
Obama’s portrait painting is available as Giclee print, in different sizes and different formats, in my FAA Gallery:
