Went to the Brooklyn Museum to see Kehinde Wiley’s work today. It’s truly a good way to get to know this artist and his craft. There’s no denying that Wiley is an incredibly talented artist and painter. Most recently he’s been doing sculptures and stained glass pieces, but his paintings were definitely the highlight for me. His large canvases take full command of the room. His use of bright, saturated colors and intricate patterns reel you in. I was mesmerized and inspired. If you have a chance, go see it… you won’t regret it. The exhibit runs through May 24th.
Below you will see images of the exhibit and detail of his work.
