Description: Kehinde Wiley: Saint Louis: The celebrated artist re-envisions Museum masterworks featuring Saint Louisans. Wiley creates large-scale oil paintings of contemporary African American subjects in poses that recall grand traditions of European and American portraiture. His models -real people dressed in their own clothing - assume poses adapted from historic paintings. Wiley’s portraits often feature ornate and decorative backgrounds, elements of which surround and sometimes weave around his subjects. His works address the politics of race and power in art, drawing attention to the pervasive lack of representation of people of color in the art world.
