Black Rock and Kehinde Wiley launch limited edition print

Online with Black Rock Senegal, Dakar, Senegal

Black Rock Senegal and Kehinde Wiley announce the release of 'Dimietrus Study' (2021), the third annual limited edition print to support the Black Rock Senegal artist-in-residence program. All net proceeds from the signed edition of 30 prints will benefit Black Rock as a charitable contribution.

Kehinde Wiley’s 'Dimietrus Study' (2021) features a portrait of a young, Black New Yorker amidst a wreath of pink and blue flora that Wiley originally created in 2008. Returning to the composition, Wiley explains, “This portrait continues a theme that exists within the selection of prints I have made for Black Rock Senegal. Each addresses the complicated intersection between the masculine and the feminine, the historic and the present. Much like the Black Rock Senegal program, and the artists we welcome each year, these works draw inspiration from a beautiful and terrible past to offer a new optimism for how we can reclaim tradition to reimagine our shared future.”

This print release is the third annual charitable partnership between Kehinde Wiley and Black Rock Senegal, following the releases of 'Sharrod Hosten Study III' (2020) and 'Head of a Young Girl Veiled' (2019).

Inquires in regards to purchasing a print can be made via the Kehinde Wiley Shop website. Please note that availability will be based on order of inquires received.
