    “In the end, one of the most fascinating things that I dealt with in the designing of these paintings is, ‘How do you pair color and the decorative with each one of the models?’ So I’d play with the placement of tattoos… I’ll go out of my way to find these moments of self adornment.” Kehinde Wiley
