Kehinde Wiley

Kehinde Wiley using European paintings to create unique forms that are within each painting. such as the man on the horse is an urban example of the renaissance painting of Napoleon. The urban example is of a black man on a horse that exhumes power that African American men rarely have within society. The images side by side are very powerful, Kehinde captures the essence in his painting as if he were a renaissance artist himself.
