Kehinde Wiley’s works incorporate a range of art-historical and vernacular styles ranging from French Rococo paintings to contemporary urban street art in compositions that cast young black men as somewhat heroic figures. His large-than-life subjects are depicted in poses that underscore their power and masculinity while pointing to a process of spiritual awakening.
