The Symbolic Kiss

This image depicts US President Obama and his rival Venezuela's President Chavez. The word "unhate" at the top of this image along with gentlemen's head connected by the lips, clearly suggest acting out the metaphor "kiss and make up!" (thats what I get) But, according to US customs, two men kissing is definately associated with homosexuality. To some, homosexuality is considered a weakness within men, especially ones in position of power. So could this be an attack on either President's prowess, or manhood in general? HMMMMM!


  1. I think his work is mostly of shock value. Nonetheless, your interpretation is an interesting one!

  2. I agree with Dan. I would hope e inent is peace though, I'm going to think that too.
