Wiley's exhibit will be at The Studio Museum in Harlem from Jul 17 thru October 26,2008.

Wiley is known for his stylized paintings of young, urban African-American men in poses borrowed from eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European figurative paintings, a practice he started in the early 2000s

    I saw one of his paintings at The Brooklyn Museum of Art--crazy. Here sits this black general on top of a horse, with his sceptor surrounded by this 18th-century style setting, in army fatigues and some Timbs. The evolution of art, I love it.
