Twitter users questioned the inspiration behind the portrait, with some comparing the portrait to a GIF of Homer Simpson disappearing into a bush and another Twitter user likening the portrait to a picture of Beyoncé.

The portrait was unveiled Monday at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.


The painting will join the “America’s Presidents” exhibition at the Washington gallery as part of its permanent installation, which will be on view for the public beginning on Tuesday.

Obama's portrait was painted by artist Kehinde Wiley. Obama is shown with flowers in the background, which are meant to symbolize a number of places.

The chrysanthemums are the official flower of Chicago, where Obama began his political career. His childhood home of Hawaii is represented by jasmine, and African blue lilies serve as a nod to his late Kenyan-born father, Barack Obama Sr.
