Kehinde Wiley's collection of six porcelain coupe plates allow you to bring the contemporary art home. Made in direct collaboration with the artist, the collection features details from paintings spanning 2008-2012. Each of the six images - 3 male and 3 female - are cropped against intricate, vibrant backgrounds, and can be hung decoratively or used as completely functional dinner plates. This porcelain plate features Kehinde Wiley’s 2008 painting Matar Mbaye II, from The World Stage: Africa, Lagos-Dakar and features a model of the same name.  Taking on a more regional approach, Wiley turned to many post-colonial sculptures throughout Lagos and Dakar for reference poses for his models. Each coupe plate is 10.75" and shows a stamped signature on the verso. The plates are individually boxed.
