Renowned artist Kehinde Wiley says Michelle Obama vetoed his first draft of her husband’s portrait

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- Renowned artist Kehinde Wiley is known for giving a voice to the voiceless, replacing black figures for white ones in classical paintings as a remedy for the historical invisibility of black men.

The artist sat down for an exclusive interview with The Associated Press fresh of the heels off his historic Times Square sculpture and talked about his new artist residency program in Africa and his foray into stained glass.
