ARTIST OF THE WEEK 3





SOOOO, THIS IS THE PIECE THAT HANGS IN THE HALLS OF THE "DIA", ITS ABOUT 8 FEET TALL AND 9 TALL, CRAZY.




IF YOU KNOW ME WELL YOU KNOW THAT I LOVE ART, BORN AND RAISED IN DETROIT, I SPENT MANY DAYS AT THE DIA. SO THIS PAST WEEKEND, I DECIDED TO PAY A VISIT. AMAZING. SOME OF THE ARTWORK I REMEMBER FROM MY CHILDHOOD. OF COURSE THERE WERE A LOT OF CLASSIC PAINTINGS IN THE PERMANENT COLLECTION. YOU HAD YOUR PICASSO, ROTHKO AND OF COURSE ANDY WARHOL. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS YOUNG BLACK ARTIST I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT. ONLY 30 YEARS OLD, I KNOW THIS ARTIST WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY. KEHINDE WILEY ART WORK IS EYE CATCHING, SO DETAILED.

CHECK OUT SOME OF HIS WORK ABOVE.
