“Vive La Liberte” Art Print by Antar Dayal

I’m not really sure what I think of this one at all, so I thought I’d ask you guys what you thought of it.  I know I couldn’t hang this in my house, but found it interesting nonetheless.  Antar Dayal, the last artist to produce a print in the Artists For Obama series, just dropped this new art print, “Vive La Liberte”.    The image is an adaptation of an illustration Dayal did for a Les Miserables poster.  It’s a 20″ x 28″ giclee, has an edition of 200, and is temporarily available for $89.  All proceeds will go toward producing more Obama related art.  To purchase, shoot them an email or visit Dayal’s blog for more info.

  1. Absolutely horrendous, if you ask me.

  2. Sorry – But it looks like a cheap Duvet cover from Target.

  3. It looks like my high school history textbook…

  4. Pffft. What a prude covering up the boob from the classic french painting. If you’re gonna quote it, at least do it correctly. Its a boob of freedom….let it fly!

  5. Not my style.

  6. Yeah, I don’t know what to make of this one at all. I can’t imagine a ton of people will buy it.

  7. Obviously some nice illustrations but I think the composition is bad with the repeated white house illustration in the balls or bubbles. Maybe I’m missing the message though.
    I think it would have been stronger if he just used one white house that took up the entire width of the compostion, then placed the woman and flag behind and up from the white house. A vertical composition would be better in this case.
    But hell, what do I know?

    On the other hand, the background reminds me of an astro pop. So, this makes a great summer print.

  8. I DO NOT LIKE THIS PRINT. THEREFORE I WILL NOT BE PURCHASING IT.

  9. HAHA!

    “i’ll take the liberty but you must censor the boobies first!”

  10. OWWWful.
    Check the original painting by the “romantic” Eugène Delacroix : “La Liberté guidant le peuple”, 1830…or see it @ musée du Louvre.

  11. I usually like to give constructive criticism, but, I really can’t in this case. It just doesn’t work, composition-wise or subject-wise. I’m struggling to see the creativity here. It feels “clip-artish”.

  12. Blasphemy.
