Kehinde Wiley

That's a Kehinde Wiley painting. He's probably my favorite painter right now. Here's his website. You should really check it out.

The appeal of this guy is that the portraits he paints are all of black men. "Urban" is the term, I think. However, he paints them like he were painting Queen Elizabeth or someone like that. It's a concept I haven't seen attempted in a while. Hats off to Kehinde.
