George W. Bush's 24 paintings will reportedly be on display at the George W Bush Presidential Library and Museum on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas as part of his first art exhibit, "The Art of Leadership: A President's Personal Diplomacy".

According to the 'Today' show, the former US president who took up painting after he left the White House in 2009 will unveil his renditions of leaders like Tony Blair, Vladimir Putin and the Dalai Lama on the NBC program in a segment with his daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, the Washington Times reported.

The 67-year-old Bush added that he hopes that people will take it in the spirit in which these were painted in.

He added that he admires them as leaders and was willing to give it a shot in terms of getting people to see how the politician felt about them.

The American politician first came into news for his paintings in February 2013 when his first painting of himself got leaked online.

Bush was reportedly quoted as saying that he was annoyed and he never wanted his paintings to get out.

He said that he found it was very interesting that the first painting that came out was the one he painted of himself in the bathtub, which he did to kind of shock his instructor.
