Matar Mbaye II Porcelain Plate
This porcelain plate features Kehinde Wiley’s 2008 painting Matar Mbaye II, from The World Stage: Africa, Lagos-Dakar. Featuring the model of the same name, an intricate grapevine background protrudes around his torso and into the foreground as his gaze meets the viewers directly. Taking on a more regional approach, Wiley turned to many post-colonial sculptures throughout Lagos and Dakar for reference poses for his models.
