Kehinde Wiley has risen to international acclaim by elevating black bodies in his portraiture. While he once painted black men exclusively, he's expanded his repertoire to include black women as well.


While Wiley's been traveling the world, he's captured residents of each country he visits. His latest exhibit, World Stage: Haiti, features Haitian residents and will be shown at Roberts & Tilton gallery in Los Angeles from September 13th through October 25th.
