The text on the image reads
“Today, we say yes to something that looks like us. We say yes to inclusivity. We say yes to broader notions of what it means to be an American.”—Kehinde Wiley on the unveiling of his sculpture, ‘Rumors of War'
Kehinde Wiley is subtle in his surrealism, utilizing juxtaposition and composition rather than relying on fantasy. On a personal level, his use of vibrant color and patterning feed my stressed out soul.
Oh yeah, and he painted that phenomenal portrait of Pres. Obama.
