Once a month for the past two months I’ve been an honorary Seattle resident for a weekend, which is very fortuitous because one of my favorite artists has an exhibition currently at the SAM, and I got to catch it.
I love Kehinde Wiley. Not just because one of his paintings features a product I used to do a lot of work for.
But as a print and pattern designer, his paintings are hugely inspirational, and feature very delicately and carefully painted textile prints that seem almost impossible to execute. Being able to see them up close was magical.
