An Interview with Kurt Kauper
by Otino Corsano

The current 2009 issue of artUS features
my interview with New York painter
Kurt Kauper. The following is an excerpt
of the artUS article:

Barack and Michelle Obama, Kurt Kauper, 2009

Barack and Michelle Obama.
It seemed like a great idea
when I started the paintings last summer.
Since then, countless artists
have made paintings of Barack Obama.
Hopefully, mine will be better.

Jeffrey Deitch, of the Deitch Gallery talks to people about a painting of U.S. President-elect Barack Obama, right, by Kurt Kauper during a preview for VIPs at Art Basel Miami Beach in Miami Beach, Fla. Wednesday, Dec. 3, 2008.
