Homage to Kehinde Wiley – atwood_art

Why did You pick this picture?

I picked this because I wanted to do a self portrait using bright colors, and the sunglasses had a nice reflection. 

Where did the art idea come from?

I was inspired by Kehinde Wiley’s work, and thought it would be interesting to emulate it.

What does this art mean to you?

After I painted this, it was a real turning point in my art. I was actually quite happy with it, and learned a lot through the process.

What can you tell us about yourself?

I am 14 years old, and recently just moved from Los Angeles to Vermont. Since I was born, I have know art is what I want to do the rest of my life.

What can you tell us about your art?

Most of my art pieces have a strong message behind them, and I advocate for things that are important to me.
