We hope everything is peaches, Addictees!

Welcome to this week’s Weekend Art Fix, where we all might just be going to hell in a peachy handbasket.

This week’s offering comes from Billy Ma’s Booda Brand. In the latest (and final) addition to his Socio-Politicking Series, Billy has released his submission for the official portrait of the 45th President of the United States. There’s no word yet on who might paint the portraits, so we’re crossing our fingers for Billy.

National Portrait Gallery director Kim Sajet said in a statement to Washingtonian, “As with all recent presidential commissions, we are unable to speculate as to how visitors will receive the portraits once completed. That is the beauty of portraiture: How it is received is always different for different people.” Truer words have never been spoken.

Before the big reveal, remember, the most important constitutional right of every citizen is freedom of peach.

Presenting "Presidential Portrait #45" by Booda Brand 🍑

Medium: Limited edition giclée on paper with stamped signature

Edition: Limited to 45

Arty-Fact: "In 2018, The former President signed Public Law 115-158, which prohibits the use of federal funds to pay for an official portrait of any federal official or officer, including the President, the Vice President, a member of Congress, the head of an executive agency, or the head of an office of the legislative branch. Booda Brand offers its "Presidential Portrait" proposal, gratis, to the National Portrait Gallery.

"They say a picture is worth 1000 words. Twice impeached, an unprecedented 30,000 plus public lies, resulting in carnage and unnecessary misery and death, but finally, the people have won the day.

"Power to the people, and may the world never see another." ~ Billy Ma, Booda Brand
