Wiley has gained fame for depicting contemporary subjects—he scouts for models in the streets—mashed with French Rococo style and mythological stories, all to challenge stereotypes of African American males. His new body of work, "Down," is comprised of seven large scaled paintings that draw on German Renaissance artist wiley3.jpg
