Críticas:

-As with most great art, Kehinde Wiley's portraits reflect the time and place in which they were created. They also comment on the history of portraiture, specifically upending traditional European representations of power and beauty. The paintings are distinguished not only by their subjects--young black men cloaked in hip-hop couture--and the technical gifts of their creator, which are considerable, but in their tremendous (and somewhat humorous) appeal.- ForeWord -Kehinde Wiley's portraits of men of color, portrayed as kings, knights, or saints out of Western history paintings, juxtapose issues of race and gender with ideas of power, and ask important questions about the role of young black males today. Kehinde Wiley...is a great introduction to the celebrated portrait painter. It's a perfect coffee table book, with great content.- The Artblog -This is the first monograph on Wiley, complete with gilt-edged pages and essays by art historians, and it's the kind of art you wind up talking about as much as you look at it...fascinating.- Star Ledger "As with most great art, Kehinde Wiley's portraits reflect the time and place in which they were created.
