    Abdi - Contestant


    Abdi - Contestant

    At the young age of 23, Abdi is making waves in the art world. A recent graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, he was one of four students in the nation to be awarded the Scholastics Art and Writing Gold Portfolio and was named a Presidential Scholar in the Arts, granting him an audience with the President of the United States. In 2008, the Yale Norfolk Summer School of Art selected Abdi into their program, and the following year he spent time studying abroad in Southern France. Primarily a painter, he has a passion for sculpture and printmaking. With a supportive family behind him, an infectious smile, and the drive to succeed, Abdiís career has only just begun.

    Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov

    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

    Although I can live without the Prez-as-superhero paintings, I like a lot of his portolio. I predict he will make it to the final three.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    I think his Obama super hero painting was great! When else can you kick butt alongside Obama but in a painting? I like Abdi! He's been in my top group both weeks!

    I loved his portrait of his fellow contestant.
    The colours were so vibrant, but not overdone, imo.
    Very striking.
    I was amazed that he could achieve that work within the time they were given.
