        Finding Subjects | Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace

        Look inside Kehinde Wiley's casting process as he takes to the streets of New York City to find models to paint for upcoming exhibition. Casting this series is different for Wiley, because he will be painting women for the first time. Wiley looks for a sense of self-possession and for strong personality in the people he stops. Shopping centers prove to be good scout areas, because they showcase people interacting and in motion. These qualities draw Wiley to individuals and inspire his work, which is politcally and socially valuable.
