A New Republic
 Kehinde Wiley

Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY

Wiley’s signature portraits of everyday men and women riff on specific paintings by Old Masters, replacing the European aristocrats depicted in those paintings with contemporary black subjects, drawing attention to the absence of African Americans from historical and cultural narratives. The exhibition includes an overview of the artist’s prolific fourteen-year career and features sixty paintings and sculptures.  - thru May 24


The Humorous Ceramic Tea Pots and Old Master Art of  Noi Volkov

Art History has always been a passion of mine. My work depicts famous works, artists, and artistic movements in various ways to illustrate their influence on the art world. I mix artists in unexpected ways but there is always an artistic thread that binds them together. My work is like a tribute to all the artists who have ever inspired me. My work is also intended to put emphasis back on past masters in a fun, unexpected way. I am a sculpture and a painter, I combine both by hand sculpting forms and painting on them as if on a canvas. Together I feel my two mediums come combine to create my personal style.
