Artist Kehinde Wiley

February 8th 2010 - Inspiration

In this month’s issue of Juxtapoz, I came across artist Kehinde Wiley and was instantly blown away by his paintings. Wiley is a Yale-grad, Harlem based portraitist that works some downright awesome patterns into his pieces. I still can’t believe this guy can paint these intricate patterns without losing focus of the individual(s) in the artwork. Check out his gallery at
