Many Internet users drew attention to the unusual background.
Sooo…do we like Obama’s portrait? It’s a wonderful likeness and the detail and color are great but I think the pose is a little weird and also why is he randomly in a suit seated on a chair in a bush? It looks like he got lost in the hedge maze in The Shining. pic.twitter.com/asxth2F2kh

A number of users noted the ambiguity of previous works of Kehinde Wiley.
Why exactly did Barack Obama choose Kehinde Wiley to paint his presidential portrait? Kehinde Wiley has a habit of painting black people holding knives and the freshly severed heads of white people. Sick!! pic.twitter.com/bpjVqahkkD
