The World Stage Africa Patch


Designer: Kehinde Wiley Studio 
Dimensions: 3 x 3"

This square patch features Kehinde Wiley’s 2008 painting 
Matar Mbaye II, from The World Stage: Africa, Lagos-Dakar. Featuring the model of the same name, an intricate grapevine background protrudes around his torso and into the foreground as his gaze meets the viewers directly. Taking on a more regional approach, Wiley turned to many post-colonial sculptures throughout Lagos and Dakar for reference poses for his models.

Dye-sublimation with purple merrowed borders and iron on backing.

Net proceeds from your purchase support the artist in residence program Black Rock Sénégal, founded by Wiley in 2019.
