I had the pleasure of creating an original painting for President Bill Clinton back in 2000. Check out my vintage polaroid photo of the artwork! This is way before smartphones and Instagram. I was experimenting with Pop Art imagery combined with abstraction which had a heavy Robert Rauschenberg influence. The painting was presented to President Clinton when he visited Minneapolis for a fundraiser, and I received a personal letter from him afterward. This painting, which I titled Four Clintons, is 30×36″ mixed media on board, and currently resides in his Presidential Library in Arkansas. The painting was installed in Al Gore’s office at the White House for a period of time. This is a fun highlight of my career and people often ask me about it. It’s interesting to see where my work has gone from this point, and I enjoy looking back on it.
Bill Clinton Album Memes
I enjoy the Bill Clinton album swap meme which has become a thing. Basically, people replace the album that Bill Clinton is holding (and around him) with something of their choosing. There is an online Bill Clinton Album Meme Generator that easily allows you to search and replace all four albums. No photoshop skills needed! The choices are endless!
