Roberts & Tilton Gallery will play host to the latest works by Kehinde Wiley. “The World Stage: Brazil” reflects the continuation of a series in which Wiley’s extensive investigative and dialog with his worldly subject matter is showcased by the artist wildly energetic and realistic artwork. This collection depicts the residence of Rio de Janeiro’s favelas rather then focusing on the elite, giving the artist colorful and vibrant subjects which shows the diversity in the region. Wiley also took the time to commission hand carved framework from local exotic woods to complement his paints and to further support the favela community. An excellent collection and and portrayal of some of the most vibrant and good natured people in the world, a must see.
