Revelation 666 by Pierre Kenal Louis

The United States and other countries all over the world tend to cling to public speakers, musicians, politicians and other governmental leaders as idols knowingly or unknowingly. "Revelation 666" is a complete symbolic interpretation of that.

Political art have the tendency of causing a stir or controversy based on history. In this political drawing the visual artist Kenal composed the piece due to all of the conspiracies, talks, and spectacles that surrounded the President of the United States Barrack Obama and Mitt Romney in 2012.

The artist had the following to say. "The past years that the president reigned ruler of the nation he received nothing except claims that he was the anti-Christ, part of the new world order and purely an evil man."

This artwork inspired by a presidential debate from Pierre (Kenal) Louis contains so much symbolism that it is just puzzling to look at.

This work of art connects what is known as political art or political cartoons to religious art. The artwork features Grammy Winner Lady Gaga at the top of the composed work, while the president Obama is at the lower left corner of the piece and governor Mitt Romney is also below her on the lower right corner of the artwork. Even though the two Politicians’ are in a different field than Lady Gaga they are all leaders in the American nation and culture.

A wide amount of people look unto to president Barack Obama, governor Mitt Romney and pop culture songstress Lady Gaga as idols in the current generation.

"Having idols and someone to look up to is great, but sometime can be misleading because one doesn’t always know what goes though the celebrities and or well recognized Politicians’ heads."

Tying the Presidential Debate and Art Together Regarding the Future of the Country

The 2012 election between President Barrack Obama and governor Mitt Romney is something truly interesting to follow. Watching the two candidates go at it during each presidential debate is thrilling. However, not knowing whether each candidate will stick to what they say or uphold to the words that they present on national television is always a mystery.

Kenal also had to following to say "Both Politicians’ have their pros and cons, but this does not mean someone should just sit back and not vote. Not deciding to vote still leaves the fate of the country to either one of the candidates’ hands that will be president; people should make a choice and live with it."

Watching a presidential debate does not fully breakdown what each candidates truly believe as runners for the title of presidency. People should learn to look more into policies before voting and making a choice that may destroy the countries morals, financial stability, or military.

Generally a presidential debate focuses on finance, health care, and foreign policy. An example is columnist Brian Montopoli's article "Foreign policy the focus for final debate" for CBSNEWS. However, the most sensitive topics are avoided to give the viewers a full view of what each candidate’s hearts truly contain and what they represent. Voting may be viewed as choosing between a lesser evil, but a choice has to be made. Not saying that these men are evil men, but the perception is implied in the artwork. Everyone have various interpretations and view art differently. The visual artist Kenal expresses his thoughts regarding the controversial artwork, the presidential debate and his views on politics.

Below is a block quote from Kenal’s blog post about the artwork found on kenalsworld.com.

“The United States and other countries all over the world tend to cling to public speakers, musicians, politicians and other governmental leaders as idols knowingly or unknowingly. "Revelation 666" is a complete symbolic interpretation of that because I attempt to combine entertainment and politics together to show the direction the majority of eyes have been on for the past years. Make no mistake everything I did in this art piece was not by mistake and have a meaning. From the (666) and snake tongue on governor Mitt Romney. Many politicians are very misleading... I would like to think 80 percent of them are vile, liars, fake, and only truly in the interest of their own kind versus truly caring for an entire group of people. I do not like politics because it always gets very dirty and those sometimes one may think is good can be also misleading.”
