here's the press packet:

Ron English is a New-York based Pop-Artist. He is most famous for his street art, where he subverts existing billboard advertisements by using his own artwork in place of the existing legitimate billboards. He is in the middle of his nationwide tour making murals of “Abraham Obama”, a portrait of Abraham Lincoln fused with presidential hopeful Barack Obama. The tour travels to Boston, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and ends in Denver at the Democratic National Convention

The “Abraham Obama” Campaign Tour has received international attention, including the following news, and countless blogs reporting on the event:
