About

2B Or Not 2B Life Drawing Collective invite you to join them in a drawing session inspired by Kehinde Wiley. 

Wiley's work, currently on display at the Gallery in his exhibition 'The Prelude', makes reference to the canon of European portraiture by positioning contemporary Black sitters, from a range of ethnic and social backgrounds, in the poses of the original historical, religious or mythological figures.
