Kehinde Wiley Printed Tee
These all over print, unisex t-shirts feature imagery directly pulled from Kehinde Wiley’s paintings, A Portrait of a Young Gentleman (Blue Multi) and Death of St. Joseph (Cream Multi). Luxuriously crafted with comfort and durability in mind, this t-shirt is made from soft, ring-spun poly. Cut and sewn in LA.
Wiley’s painting A Portrait of a Young Gentleman (2021) was created as a contemporary response to Thomas Gainsborough's iconic Blue Boy portrait (1770). His painting reimagines Gainsborough's young white subject as a Black, Senegalese surfer and replaces the original moody wooded landscape with a vibrant floral backdrop which decorates the entire surface of the shirt.
Wiley’s painting Death of St. Joseph (2017) derives its ideation from 18thCentury classical biblical portraiture and the enigmatic art history of St. Joseph, boldly reimagined for a contemporary audience. The garment’s visionary portrait is vibrantly displayed on the back and its stylized and imaginative design of lush multi-colored flowers, greenery and a powerful yet playful rooster decorate the entire surface of the shirt.
