Kehinde Wiley

Los Angeles born New York transplant Kehinde Wiley paints the most amazing portraits in a style that is a fusion between classical and new. Black, modern hip hop men are reincarnated in poses inspired by classical portraits by Van Dyke, Hans Holbein the younger and other big names.

He has a show coming up at Roberts & Tilton in Culver City April 5th through May 9th, something I will have to go see.
