Artist To Create Massive Obama Portrait Near Barcelona Beach

According to CNN, the artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada is plans to create a gigantic face of Obama sculpted from gravel and sand, which will cover nearly 2.5 acres (1 hectare) of Barcelona beachfront before the U.S. elections.

"The size of the piece is intrinsic to its value," he said. "Obama's personality -- his youth, personal history and message of a new politics -- has fused with the historical moment to create someone larger than life," he added.

The artist also explained that the huge size also alludes "to the global impact of this election,".

Rodriguez-Gerada, 42, is a Cuban-born American who grew up in North Plainfield, New Jersey, near New York, and now lives in Barcelona.

"Everybody's doing work about Obama," he said.
