Showing the Black Light

Known for his lavishly painted compositions, Kehinde Wiley features his new collection, Black Light, at Deitch Projects. Instead of relying on paintbrushes for this show, the prints are photographically inclined and still contain the intricate wallpaper-style patterns of his usual style. Using the beautiful balance of hip-hop trendsetters meets renaissance posing, the subjects photographed in their plaid shirts and flat brim New Era hats, pop off the page with the color and pattern choice they are paired with. Free Arts NYC teamed up with Wiley to set a raffle to win a print, with all proceeds going to aid arts education with Free Arts.
