Favorite artist discovered last week: Amoako Boafo @amoakoboafo , a Ghanaian-born, Vienna-based painter who provides a window into our own experience as seen through his eyes and the eyes of the people he paints, creating a human connection that allows for a very valuable and necessary moment of expansion.

It’s Bar-SOCK Obama! Happy President’s day! @barackobama @socksmith @kehindewiley
Been a Kehinde Wiley fan for years and finally got to see a piece up close and in person!! 😍 In my opinion the greatest artists are the ones who create art to expose injustices and challenge social and political norms. Wiley is one of the best at this. Might seem subtle to some, but he’s bold and unapologetic if you know your art history. And in honor of President’s Day let’s reminisce how he also painted Obama’s official presidential portrait last year up in the Smithsonian. 🙌🏽 #kehindewiley #mfaboston #artnerdalert #respect #almostpeedmypants #top5top5top5
Happy President's Day! Which of these 🇺🇸 portraits captures YOUR eye?
This is late but I’m so happy that I got the chance to see this beautiful art. It was so amazing to see black people displayed so powerful. All while wearing clothes they picked themselves.

Hearing people say “thank you” to #KehindeWiley’s Barack portrait today was beautiful. And #AmySherald’s portrait of Michelle is so powerful.
Thanks, Obamas 💛💛

A striking, early Kehinde Wiley, beautiful gold ground Barkley Hendricks, a jewel of a Wangechi Mutu bronze and a rare Isaac Julien sculpture, à la Duane Hanson, of film maker Melvin van Peebles. Just some of the many fascinating works in ‘Black Refractions ; Highlights from the Studio Museum in Harlem’ which helps to illustrate the breath and growth of their permanent collection of works from as far back as the 1920’s.

Happy Presidents Day from DC! One of our favorite paintings to visit when in Washington D.C. particularly on this holiday. #obama #obamaportrait #kehindewiley @nationalportraitgallery #contemporaryart #presidentialportrait #contemporarypainting
Today, Jenkins Johnson Gallery would like to honor President Barack Obama, the first black president of the United States. Obama’s impact is widespread and includes major influences in the art world. President Obama selected Kehinde Wiley to paint his official Presidential Portrait (above), which is now on view in the collection of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. Speaking on Wiley's portraits, Obama said that they "challenge our conventional views of power and privilege." On this President's Day, we would like to celebrate art that challenges us as a country. Thank you, President Obama, for your leadership not just in the United States, but also around the world.

Honoring ALL of our great presidents.@smithsoniannpg a wonderful place to see the faces of US leadership#Happypresidentsday#nationalportraitgallery#washingtondc#kehindewiley#MyNPG
Kehinde Wiley @kehindewiley (b. 1977) was born in California, and attended the @sfaiofficial (B.F.A)and @yaleschoolofart (M.F.A). Wiley’s paintings are massive examples of contemporary realism, and they depict Black people in heroic poses standing in front of back drop rich flowery pattern. His artworks are reminisce of Renaissance paintings with a Rococo flair. Wiley’s paintings is another example of an artist trying to use contemporary art to reclaim or create space for Black people in Art History. But, Wiley is also challenging current day stereotypes by highlighting the regality, humanity, and sensibility of Black folks in a society that often tries to erase them. Whether in #timberlands #nike #snapbacks #jerseys #hairwraps #cornrows the Black protagonists are always victors, kings, and queens. Even when he shows his Black male protagonists in death clad in their street clothes(a sight that we are all becoming too familiar with), it’s humane and heavenly;a stark difference from what is being shown on the news. As an artist that thrives in capturing the elegance of Black people, it was only fitting that Wiley painted the first Black President’s @barackobama portrait which currently stands in @smithsonian . Wiley larger than life paintings (you feel very small in front of most of them) is a celebration of the Black beauty in the struggle. You can see Wiley’s work @nationalportraitgallery @brooklynmuseum @mfaboston @ncartmuseum .

President Barack Obama #blackhistorymonth #kehindewiley #44>45 #presidentsday
In case you didn’t realize why traffic wasn’t *as* bad this morning, it’s President’s Day in the U.S. How fitting that the Presidential Portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama were just unveiled at the Nation’s Portrait Gallery last week, painted by Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald, respectively. After each U.S. President’s term, they customarily commission a painted portrait which is then displayed in the Portrait Gallery. To add to the Obama’s list of firsts, they were the first presidential couple to commission African American artists to complete their portraits, and strong artists at that.
What do you think of the work?

#KehindeWiley’s monumental new #portrait, ‘Jacob de Graeff’ (2018) has been acquired by the Oklahoma City Museum of Art (#OKCMOA).
________
Wiley’s new portrait will headline the reopening of OKMOA’s second-floor galleries this Spring. Part of an exciting new presentation of the museum’s permanent collection, the painting will be on display in a new portrait gallery featuring works by Anthony #vanDyck, Pierre-Auguste #Renoir, and #GeorgeBellows.
________
“Wiley’s ‘Jacob de Graeff’ adds a significant work by one of America’s most prominent young artists,” said E. Michael Whittington, President and CEO of the Museum. “With our 2017 exhibition, Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic, we immediately set our sights on acquiring a work for our collection. When we saw this painting, it was love at first sight.” Wiley’s work was painted after the Gerard ter Borch painting of Jacob de Graeff in the collection of #SaintLouisArtMuseum.

Thanks for painting me @joelmesler. Awkwardly staring into your beautiful eyes, through my beautiful eyes and holding still while Donald Trump and Kanye West (on a t shirt) were starring at me the whole time was quite the experience. Cannot wait to get this 55 year old version of me after a rough weekend in Moscow on the wall. #kehindewiley and #obama ain’t got nothing on us 😂.
