British Prime Minister David Cameron and President Obama swapped paintings during Cameron’s official visit to the USA. Obama gave Camera a print by Ed Ruscha, and Obama received a canvas by Ben Eine! Don’t get me wrong, Obama’s new painting (pictured above) looks great, but I just think it’s hilarious that Cameron decided to give Obama artwork by a former vandal who is probably technically still wanted by the police. Then again, this isn’t the only artwork by a street artist that’s going to be hanging in the White House, David Choe’s portrait of Obama is already there.
