Artist Billi Kid Wishes You a Happy Inauguration Day

Billi Kid's Obama Stencil (2009)

Billi Kid's latest stencil is on view in D.C. as part of "Manifest Hope," in which artists, a lot of them street legends, imagine the future that begins ... today. Whereas Shepard Fairey, in his already iconic rendering of Obama, captured the man in all his gentle concern, Billi Kid seems to have caught our new president laughing at Chief Justice Roberts's oath-giving ability.
