While others are preparing 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats for U.S President Barack Obama, pencil artist Collins Okello is planning to wow him with his incredible talent. The Kisumu based artist who got his big break when he was invited to State House to deliver a portrait of President Uhuru Kenyatta, is hoping to strike gold for a second time with an amazing portrait of the leader of the Free World.
Having already established connections to the State House, perhaps the good lad Uhuru could make it possible for Collins to present his portrait to his ‘cousin’ when he jets into the country this summer. For all of Jaduong’s hard work and smart business acumen that would make Faiba’s Mbugua proud, a meeting with Obama would be a reward like no other. It would also look great on his CV.
Here are some photos of the portrait. You can check out the finished product on Jaduong’s website Here
Your move Mr. President Uhuru Kenyatta!
