Artist Replete presents "Black Enough For Ya?" by Chicago artist Max Sansing, now available on the secondary art market.
Created in 2017, this portrait was made in remembrance of a younger Obama, eager to make change in the world. This particular piece became highly recognized after it was used for cover art in aninterview with the artist.
“I painted him when he was younger because I used to catch the train on 79th Street to go to school and I would see him... He was just a cool, regular guy and I definitely remembered that name. I later saw him speak at the 2000 Kenwood Academy graduation, and it was like that’s the same guy from the train station. Next thing you know, damn he’s president.”
Max Sansing is a Chicago-based fine artist and one of the city’s most prolific and talented muralists. His distinct aesthetic fuses the color-drenched dynamism of street art with the technical elegance of photorealism.
Born and raised on the South Side by two artistic parents, Sansing discovered his passion and creative gift at an early age. During his youth he was involved with several graffiti crews and taught himself oil painting before completing formal training at the American Academy of Art. In addition to his studio practice, Sansing is frequently commissioned to create large-scale murals and experiential installations across the country.
The artist is deeply committed to supporting his Chicago community and is involved with numerous youth programs that expand arts opportunities in underserved areas. Since the start of his career, Max has collaborated with Netflix, Puma, Virgil Abloh, and number of prestigious brands. He's considered by many to be one of the most sought artists in the Midwest.
