For his latest series, ‘An Economy of Grace’, Nigerian-American artist Kehinde Wiley features women as his subjects - a first in the history of his works.

Currently on show at the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York, Wiley teamed up with another current artistic force and the man behind the recent surge in success for French label Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci, who designed the costumes for the subjects in all of Wiley’s pieces.
