Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 19, 2009
Christopher Shannon Art today announced the television unveiling of the recent release "Change in America", the limited edition print commemorating the historic election of President-Elect Barack Obama as the nations first African American President.
"I am pleased with the exposure that this limited edition drawing is receiving..." says Shawn Cook public relations specialist with Say it and See It Productions. "I personally am on my own campaign to have Christopher Shannon be the official artist for the Obama administration..." says Shawn.
WUSATV 9, a Washington DC area news broadcast station, did a news feature on Christopher Shannon on Sunday, January 4, 2009. This was Christopher Shannon's first television interview surrounding his dynamic drawings.
"This segment allowed Christopher to give voice to what leaves the eyes of the rest of us desiring for more of..." says Shawn Cook. Christopher Shannon began drawing after being incarcerated for eight years. His story is quite amazing. After being released from prison, Christopher made it to the Washington DC area with just 42 cents in his pocket and a passion for being a legitimate success.
The television interview primarily focused on Change in America which is the first in a series of drawings by Christopher Shannon that will be dedicated to the Barack Obama Presidency. There are only one thousand of these prints that will be in circulation. Each one will be signed and numbered and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. "This is the most unique Barack Obama Art that is available for purchase..." says Johann King art enthusiast and DC resident. " I would compare and put this up against any piece out there and for only $350 unframed, its a steal."
"My love for what Barack Obama has done stems from the central message of his campaign which was CHANGE," says Christopher Shannon. "I am a person who believes in the power of change. I spent 8 years away from my family and friends changing and because I committed to change, I was able to discover my purpose and my power as a professional artist."
Christopher Shannon also used this news broadcast as an opportunity to display some of his other works as a privately commissioned artist including a stunning water color entitled the Struggle. "The Struggle depicts Christopher's own frustration and regret for the behaviors that led to his conviction and time in prison," says Shawn Cook. "Christopher's life story is just as fascinating as his art. There is a very happy ending to this story for Christopher however and the world will soon know who this guy is."
This television interview is the first, but certainly not the last of Christopher. Limited Edition prints of Change in America can be purchased by visiting ChristopherShannonArt.com] or contacting Christopher directly.
