While doing some research for the book, I came across these busts by Kehinde Wiley. I have been in love with his paintings since first seeing them in a Philadelphia art gallery years ago, and was very excited to see his beautiful marble and resin busts.
Kehinde is a master at blending classical European art styles with modern day pictorials of African-American men. And here he has brought his male subjects off the canvas, in the form of these amazing busts.
I am definitely saving for one of these. They are limited edition, signed, and absolutely original works of art. All three of these busts can be purchased at CerealArt.
