    Kehinde Wiley

    Top Ten Books

    Los Angeles-born artist Kehinde Wiley creates formal paintings of people of color, all street-cast, set against and within patterned backgrounds, which ultimately escape from the back into the foreground. His painting style resembles that of old masters like Titian and Ingres, but the state of his subjects (described as “heroic” by the Columbus Museum of Art), who are painted in their street clothes, retools the hierarchy of importance for a modern world. 2015 saw a retrospective of his work at the Brooklyn Museum.

    Below are Kehinde Wiley’s favorite books, available to purchase as a set or individually.
