artseeks_communications Artist: Kehinde Wiley

Title: Sleep, 2008 - From Series: Down
Medium: Oil on canvas 132" x 300" || Mr. Wiley is one of the most celebrated painters of his generation. He is known for vibrant, photo-based portraits of young black men (and occasionally women) who are the opposite of scared — they gaze out at us coolly, their images mashed up with rococo-style frills and empowering poses culled from art history. He maintains studios in #China and #Senegal in addition to New York. || #ContemporaryBlackArt #BlackArt #AfricanAmericanArt #modernart #fishing #art #visualArtist #performance #bestoftheday #AfricanAmericanArtHistory #artist #artoftheday #artE #Africaninfluence #love #instatweep #Nigeria #NewYork #KehindeWiley

africasout ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: To be alive in Kehinde Wiley's generation is a privilege. Each of his works is a masterpiece, so the fact that he has graciously offered to donate an original painting to help raise funds and awareness for UHAI EASHRI is simply incredible! @kehindewiley you are exquisite. thank you for joining our effort to fight for LGBTQI rights in Africa. #africasout #artistsunite #LGBTQIrights #kehindewiley 3d
