David Hammon's oeuvre is marked with qualified skepticism. Employing sarcastic undertones, his works describe Black urban experience as a means to address racial issues and topics. This work, "Obama Shrine - 16th Century - Obama, Japan" recalls an interview in 2006 when, then Senator Barack Obama, was noted to share a name with the Japanese port city of Obama, Japan. This relationship spurred national attention, and became the focus of Hammon's print. Notably, "Obama Shrine - 16th Century - Obama, Japan" was created for the portfolio of works entitled "Artists for Obama," a fundraising campaign for the Democratic National Convention in 2012 by artist workshop and print studio, Gemini G.E.L.
