Puma x Kehinde Wiley

I am not sure what it is about this window that keeps grabbing my attention. I think it is the excellent visual images. I love full frontal figure paintings, drawings or photography. It has a formal tone and is very common in a by-gone era where a person proudly poses in regalia in front of wallpaper-like backdrops . This artistic style kind of reminds me of Vladimir Grigoryevich Tretchikof famous work.

I will leave the words above unedited because it is only after studying the pic that I noticed the signature on the images and on the backdrop (I apologise, this is not the best pic as it was taken in haste). I deciphered part of the name and then googled to find the most amazing New York based artist Kehinde Wiley. Have a look at this link Puma x Kehinde Wiley Spring / Summer 2010 Collection to view better quality visual images and to view the most amazing product. Further to this I have just found out that PUMA commisions contemporary artist Kehinde Wiley to create portraits of African football players to celebrate World Cup 2010 campaign. Pure genius!

Here is some updated information and a link to Kehinde Wiley’s Artysy.Net  page that includes his bio, beautiful images of his works, exclusive articles about Kehinde Wiley, as well as his up-to-date exhibitions. Enjoy!! (Tuesday, 24th Feb 2015)
