Kehinde Wiley

Alios Itzhak, from The World Stage: Israel, Hand Signed by Kehinde Wiley

100% Canadian maplewood skateboard

Extremely rare collectors' item then hand signed. 

This long sold out skateboard, based upon Kehinde Wiley's painting, Alios Itzhak, was signed in black marker by the artist at The Jewish Museum on the occasion of his major exhibition "The World Stage: Israel", featuring portraits focusing on contemporary youth from Jewish-Ethiopian-Israeli, Jewish-Israeli and Arab-Israeli communities. Very few of these skateboards have been hand signed by the artist, making this a true collectors item. Kehinde Wiley's acclaimed World Stage series inserts into the language of old master portraiture the very ethnicities and ethnic iconography that Western art has most excluded from it, or that Western art has portrayed solely in colonial, Orientalist terms. Among the countries and continents he has previously depicted in this ambitious traveling epic are: Brazil, Africa, China, India and Sri Lanka. The rhetoric of Wiley's paintings is powerful in its compositional candor, color palette and playfulness with constructions of visual meaning; as Paul D. Miller (DJ Spooky) notes, "Wiley's canvas surfaces are a mirror reflection of America's unceasing search for new meanings from the ruins of the Old World of Europe and Africa."
