About

Kehinde Wiley is an American artist best known for his portraits that render people of colour in the traditional settings of Old Master paintings. Most famously, in 2017, he was commissioned to paint Barack Obama, becoming the first Black artist to paint an official portrait of a president of the United States. 

This is an exciting opportunity to hear from the artist himself as he discusses his exhibition, 'Kehinde Wiley at the National Gallery: The Prelude'.
