Portrait of Marie-Agnès Diene
Edition Size: 30
Esteemed contemporary artist Kehinde Wiley is proud to announce the release of his latest limited-edition print, Portrait of Marie-Agnès Diene in alliance with Black Rock Sénégal and Kehinde Wiley Shop. This charitable partnership marks the fourth annual collaboration between the artist and Black Rock Sénégal, a dynamic artists-in-residence program in Dakar dedicated to fostering creative exchange and dialogue throughout the African diaspora.
Portrait of Marie-Agnès Diene is a significant addition to Kehinde Wiley’s oeuvre, as it represents his first female portrait to be featured in a charitable print edition. The subject of the portrait, Marie-Agnès Diene, hails from Sénégal and posed for the piece within Wiley’s Dakar studio, which shares a compound with Black Rock Sénégal’s residency space. The portrait captures Diene’s distinct presence, merging her individuality with Wiley’s signature style characterized by vibrant patterns and arresting compositions inspired by woodblock prints.
