Obama's Spirit of Hope Immortalized in Aluminum

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) - Bringing a whole new energy to the campaign trail, Houston artist Sergio Aleman Jr.'s portrait of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is made entirely from recycled Red Bull cans -- in a party-appropriate blue color scheme. The University of Houston art student's piece is one of 47 selected to be part of the 2008 Red Bull Art of Can exhibition, which will be on display in a unique custom-designed art space at the Houston Galleria July 12 - 25. The annual juried Pop Art showcase challenges both professional and amateur artists to create works made from or inspired by the iconic Red Bull can. For more information, visit
