You all know I am a wild fan of the work of Kehinde Wiley, who until now had pretty much exclusively painted these larger-than-life portraits of Black men from around the world.  Now he is painting African-American women and doing so from his studio in Beijing. My brother is so worldly!  Here’s a link to learn more about this project and where you can see these amazing paintings.

  1. OMG AMAZING! I go to LaGuardia High School and my end of the year project will be on him! I decided to go more in depth and present his amazing artwork to my class. I'm so excited!
