Kehinde Wiley in NYC

An Economy of Grace.

Kehinde-detail_full_for_exchange

Kehinde Wiley used to create his incredible portraits of African, African-American, Afro-Brazilian, Indian and Ethiopian-Jewish men, but has now begun painting women too. We couldn’t be more thrilled, because we love his super-colourful creations that play on blending contemporary figures with classic Renaissance art.

If you want a dose of clever with your culture, you can think about the comment Wiley makes about perceptions of African-American people; their masculinity/feminity, identities and status.

If that’s too much for this time of the day, Wiley’s paintings are so aesthetically pleasing that you can ignore the message and just bask in their glory. They’re distinguished and fun all at the same time.

If you’re in New York, you can see Wiley’s Economy of Grace collection (the girls) at the Sean Kelly Gallery until June 16th.
