Innovative Chess Artwork by Canadian Artists for US Prez Barack Obama Re-election!
Ann and Peter Jurik of Jurik Designs is a Canadian based husband and wife design team. To support President Obama’s reelection, they created the "Obama - Issues 2012" artwork to not only inspire but encourage discussion and remind voters about the Key issues that are at stake. The artwork is available as a free download at http://www.peterjurik.com. The Artists request that individuals who download the free artwork make an Obama reelection contribution directly to the donation fund.
According to Ann and Peter Jurik, "We chose a Chess analogy for this artwork because we feel that President Obama is similar to a great chess player - smart, thoughtful, informed, tactical and considers all options and repercussions before making final decisions. The theme of the image and what makes it unique is that it showcases the important issues of this election and what is at risk of being lost.”
The original artwork is based on the famous chess match Kasparov vs Topalov 1999.
Jurik Designs said that they hope the image will act as a conversation piece during the election season to incite discussions about the issues, to remind people to vote and to serve as a keepsake of this historical election.
