Kehinde Wiley is an African American artist whose childhood in the notoriously gang and crime ridden South Central Los Angeles served as the stimulus for his investigating the world through art, a journey that has taken him to studies at Yale University and on to his current home base in New York City. With the artistic progress of Kehinde Wiley comes a profound respect for the grand portraiture of the past, the portraits of famous, powerful and wealthy men painted by the likes of Gainsborough, Titian, Reynolds, Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Holbein, Eakins and others. Wiley's obsession, so obvious in his majestic paintings, is to bring that same degree of dignity to the neglected African American male, placing his own heritage on the degree of celebration that has been history's realm of the White Man. In this excellent book published by Roberts & Tilton many of his strongest portraits are well reproduced and enhanced by fine essays by both Brian Keith Jackson and Kimberly Cleveland. And in keeping with the view of this book, both essays are translated into Portuguese.

Wiley's father returned to his native Africa before the birth of his son, and the need to find his identity resulted in his traveling to Africa at age twenty to finally meet his father, to define his roots. This transforming moment resulted in Wiley's beginning to concentrate on portraiture, not only as a means of understanding his father but also as a process of learning how to reproduce the intimacy that the face and body stance communicates.

I will keep this review short and sweet considering I like to be long-winded and might go on a tangent about how Kehinde Wiley is a great artist. But to restate a fact, Kehinde Wiley is a terrific artist, I respect him and I enjoy looking at his artwork, which is why I wanted to purchase this book. When I received this book, I was a little bit disappointed in the size or thickness of the book, I felt that it was too short. The painting in the book were great but I felt that I could have just kept my money and searched through the internet and enjoy his works from Brazil. I felt that it's not worth the money to spend on this book considering it's extremely short and thinner than I thought it was. As stated before, I could have saved my money and just rummaged through tumblr, flickr or a random google search. This book was okay and I recommend it to people who are an avid fan of Wiley and love to keep his pieces on hand in something tangible. If you are not one of those people and just want to see what Wiley's artwork is all about then I suggest you save your money and google search his artworks.

For someone searching for large images of Kehinde Wiley's work, this is a great buy. I also love how the images of his sources are juxtaposed with Wiley's paintings. I'm an artist who doesn't usually read the text, so no review there. The images are incredible!
