More About Kehinde Wiley by Kehinde Wiley; Thelma Golden; Robert Hobbs; Sarah E. Lewis
 
 
 
Overview
Known for his oversize paintings of contemporary African-Americans in heroic poses inspired by the great history and portrait painters of the past, Kehinde Wiley's clever and ironic -reversals- have provided rich commentary on the nature of race and power in our society. His work began primarily from photographs he took of young men on the street in Harlem that he remixed with a fusion of historic painting styles, including elements of the French rococo. As rich visually as it is conceptually, Wiley's work has drawn attention since his earliest shows in 2001. In the last decade, he has become one of the most important artists of the moment, with work as relevant and resonant to the hip-hop generation as it is to high-end collectors and major museums.
This volume--the only comprehensive monograph on Wiley's work--offers an in-depth understanding of this important artist's work. It chronicles both the earliest paintings and photographs and his recent forays into sculpture--bust portraits in bronze in the manner of Renaissance artists.
