Artist Kehinde Wiley’s portraits have been compared to a long line of past masters including Reynolds, Gainsborough and Titian. In 2017, he became the first Black artist to paint an official portrait of a President of the United States when he was commissioned to paint Barack Obama. Kehinde connects with the photographer and activist Misan Harriman, whose photographs of the Black Lives Matter movement are some of the most iconic and shared images of the digital age. In this episode, Yana Peel, Global Head of Arts & Culture at CHANEL, moderates a conversation between both as they discuss everything from painting presidents to photographing royals, myth making and the people who have transformed their lives and careers.
