African Artist:

Kehinde Wiley, a New York based portrait artist has been recognized over the last decade through his paintings that depict contemporary young black men. His paintings on African-American men threw him into the spotlight, but Wiley has since further embarked on more art projects portraying the everyday people of Nigeria, Senegal, Brazil and more. 

"For his latest exhibition, he’s ventured to Jamaica. The island has been muse to many artists, but JA is a place where moggling is a sport—a place perfectly suited to Wiley’s method, in which he casts for models literally on the street. The World Stage: Jamaica also differs from many of Wiley’s previous exhibitions in that it features a mixture of women and men— perhaps an acknowledgment of the assertive role females have always played in Jamaican society and public life.”
