Head-high Portrait picture of US-President Barack Obama, made from thousands of single photos of car registration plates of all states in the USA

Christophe Didillon (40) is a many-sided artist: if he does not paint, he travels through the world, appears sometimes dressed up as a Spiderman on the film festival in Cannes and collects donation money for children suffering from cancer; sometimes he takes photos of the long hair of pretty women and converts the photos artistically with his PC.„ Shampoo Art“ calls the creative newcomer, who already had exhibitions in the German federal presidential office and in the Hessian Parliament like in foreign museums and galleries, and who once donated crown princess Victoria of Sweden a painting, his newest art genre, for which he is constantly in search of ladies with nice hair which make to him their head available. Another concern to the artist is the extension of the child rights. For the abolition of the penologic periods of limitation in matters pertaining to abuse and maltreatment of children, Didillon made recently a pilgrimage with a big wooden cross (1.50-metre length) from the German cities Wuppertal to Cologne to the cathedral in order to win signees for the petition of Norbert Denef for the abolition of the periods of limitation (cf. http://netzwerkb.org/petition/).

Now, the artist would like to do something for the re-election and victory of US-president Barack Obama. Therefore, the artist made in a work of many months a coloured photo collage with the portrait of the American president consisting of thousands of colourful single original photos from car license plates of all US states.

Didillon: „I know that I can only present a small, friendly gesture with it in order to demonstrate to the voters in the USA how important Barack Obama's re-election in the White House is, and how much hope is connected with it for everybody of us - not only for the people in America, but also for us in Europe. Nevertheless, it should be clear to all of us: if the governmental power in the USA falls back in the hands of an ice-cold profiteer and winner at the expenses of weaker people, the devastating consequences will come to the people in Europe, too! Finally, the USA have always been the forerunner for many developments in Europe. Besides, it came to us quite intolerable enough. The politics must return to serve the people, not the unprincipled bosses in some dark back rooms of might!“

Now, Christophe Didillon wrote a letter to the election campaign team of Barack Obama in the White House. He has offered his picture as a present to the US-president. „In case that you, dear Mr. President Obama, like my picture, I am very pleased to provide it to you as a present. In case that you don’t like my work, I keep it for myself, because I like it!“, the German photo artist wrote with a smile.

Christophe Didillon (* in 1971); the many-sided artist made his mark with his WALLEY BERLIN art project referring to the fall of the Berlin Wall. The German, European and international artist of the present makes among other things miniature models of the Berlin Wall, which he designs individually. He is convinced that individual freedom is the highest value of human social live. With his works, he appeals to the people, to fight always and resolved for freedom and democracy.
Didillon is also involved with the rights of abused and ill-treated children: thus, he supports the petition of Norbert Denef and the team from www.netzwerkb.org for the abolition of the periods of limitation, and he looks for other signers of this petition … (cf. http://netzwerkb.org/petition/).
