|President Obama Sculpture||Vice-President Biden Sculpture|
“I have been sculpting since I was literally a boy. I can still remember the days of Playdough… It wasn’t until I got older, and my skills got better, did the thrill of creating become really significant. Almost political.
Like Obama, I am of a mixed race. He inspires me to believe that, today, it doesn’t matter. In the U.S. we all can be whatever we want.
I choose not to get to involved with my political beliefs publicly, but can acknowledge how important President Obama is. President Obama is, whether you like it or not, the most significant President since George Washington.
As an artist, I choose to sculpt individuals who have a significant impact on our world.”
~ James Munoz
This is not Mr. Munoz’ first Presidential sculpture. His “Young Bill Clinton” is a one-of-a-kind sculpture that was signed by President Bill Clinton himself.
Rumor has it that Vice-President Biden is considering a run for the top office in 2016. Think Mr. Munoz can go three for three?
Both sculptures are made of terracotta. The Obama sculpture is 12″ H x 5″ W x 5″ D, the Biden sculpture is 12″H x 5″ W x 5″ D. You can follow Mr. Munoz as he finishes his pieces on twitter at MrSculpty.
