Kehinde Wiley vs. Michael Jackson

So, it is no secret that I love the artist Kehinde Wiley! I love everything thing he does. I just found this while poking around on the internet this morning. The story goes, that the King of Pop commissioned some portraits by Wiley. He contacted Wiley, and Wiley thought it was a joke, but looked into it and it turned out that MJ was really trying to reach him. He was in the middle of completing the piece when he heard of MJ's passing, but decided to finish it and display it. It is a most beautiful tribute to a fascinating man. Enjoy! Thanks racewire, for sharing :)
