    You just brought back high school memories. Our art teacher took us to the Columbus museum of art my senior year and they had an exhibit with this artists work. All of us were breath taken and our teacher was so taken with his work that she had us do similar work in her class two days later. Unfortunately I moved and my own painting is stored away in my moms basement but,oh, do i remember this guys paintings. Purely amazing! And HUGE! True work of talent and dedication.

    I have no words to describe this art….Great…..
    I wanna thank you because you’re trying to show to us different kinds of art, trying to show different people. With your help I’ve found a lot of interesting things for myself. Thank you

    I must say, that art is really ENORMOUS!!

    Brilliant art, I must say….
    I can’t imagine how many years I’ll have to take just to paint things like that!

    I like the whole paintings, except the flowers… oo
    They are pretty, but they don’t really fit in those pictures. o

    SEEMS LIKE I’M SEEING THE NECKED GUY IN FLESH AND BONE… THE PAINTINGS ARE SO REALISTIC.. = D I LOVED THE NIKE SHOES DETAILS.. THANK’S FOR SHARING THIS .. TAKE CARE..WISHING ALL OF GOOD FOR YOU ^^

  6. alex86 on November 15, 2008 at 1:20 pm

    wow, that’s really cool. and what and damn me, but what i thought first was that these grey-yellow shoes are cool xD

    and did you know that fort minor’s song was used in the episode of ‘numb3rs’? cause i didn’t and that honestly hit me in my face. that was the best mix xD

  7. beth94 on November 15, 2008 at 12:57 pm

    OMG! I love these paintings! At first I thought they where photos but i when i found out that they were real they blew me away! I especially like the close-up pic of the nike’s – amazing!!!!!!

  8. Shinoda77 on November 15, 2008 at 12:28 pm

    OMG! Such a cuteness!๐Ÿ˜โค

  9. eirime on November 15, 2008 at 12:19 pm

    It’s incredibly good:) it’s interesting one things, everywhere he paint a men, there no women:) but I like what now I see… not everyone can do it…

  11. FCastro on November 15, 2008 at 8:46 am

    once I don’t understand about paintings, I just came to congratulate your works ๐Ÿ˜€
    so, show us more man! I’ve got a wish to see it but I can’t, ’cause the images are too heavy to my pc connection…

    I hope you keep doing this good jobs
    best wishes and good bye

  12. PankakeMunky on November 15, 2008 at 6:29 am

    these art works are amazing. i love the details. at first i thought they were photographs that were blown up and then i saw the nike shoe close up and that just put me in awe. i find it interesting at how the guys in these works are posed in those marble statue renaissance ways. definitely creative.

    a little on the side note, i found this: http://www.tweaktown.com/news/10543/smoothcreationscannowdeckoutyourhtsetup/ it’s a hybrid theory themed media center and i thought it was interesting how they must obviously love linkin park.

  14. Madlen on November 15, 2008 at 6:24 am

    It’s pretty amazing…but it’s kind of weird for me at the same time.I wonder how he got the idea for interpretation…

  15. antje on November 15, 2008 at 2:30 am

    Wow, pretty good (and pretty big). I like this new interpretation of older sculptures and painting .
    And the details are so exactly painted. Looks like photo. Yeah, Im impressed.

  16. maria on November 15, 2008 at 12:45 am

    Divine, Mike. It reflect the cruel overconsumered society.

  17. Girl_X on November 14, 2008 at 9:27 pm

    Not my kind of Art!

    This stuff gives me nothing when I look at it!

    But maybe I just don’t find the men attracting that he has painted!

    At least it is not Porno Art!

    Because lately I don’t want to see naked people on pictures, in paintings, in films,… in public amymore, because our society has becomen so oversexed and overnaked in public that it has becomen annoying!

    I anyway like innocent stuff and people more!

    P.S.: The flowers on the paintings are nice!

  18. Ranger111133 on November 14, 2008 at 8:04 pm

    wow that close up of the shoe is amazing….i had to draw my nike’s for an art assignment at school and it was really hard…i think i got a B- on the drawing but i thought my drawing was pretty good. the shoe is absolutely amazing having drawed a similar one before. most people wouldn’t think a shoe is so hard to draw and then paint but its really hard getting all the right shadowing and shape on the laces. the jeans also look amazingly real….i would love to be able to paint that well

  19. Metal_Value on November 14, 2008 at 7:42 pm

    My God he painted that? Really? That is so unrreal… At first when I glansed at them I thought they were just photos with some modifications.. But then I saw the close-ups and I was like “Wtf..” That is insane how can a person draw and paint and design like that? It’s ******* ridiculous I swear man.. That dude’s a freak of nature, he’s gotta be I mean wow-ah xD In a good way of course..

    I guess that’s why us Humans are where we are today.. I still can’t get my head around how one person can design like that and LOOK at the SIZE of that one painting! How the hell..

    They’re all so amazing. That guy’s insane he’s almost as good as you Mike! =O Almost..๐Ÿ˜„

    Take care man.

  20. TEQUILA on November 14, 2008 at 7:18 pm

    really wow!!very impresive and interesting art!

  21. msgirl on November 14, 2008 at 7:05 pm

    wow….i was seeking out some info about Kehinde Wiley,he is born in 1977 too…kiki…๐Ÿ™‚ hey? his painting style is really strange…it’s like today’s african american men who dressed in street clothes….hmmm….amazing…๐Ÿ™‚ i liked this one…not the black person ,but the patern on the background is amazing:)do u know the artist Andrea Joseph..he is not artist at all …but he allways draws s/th with pen…that’s seems cool…๐Ÿ™‚

  22. linkinparc on November 14, 2008 at 6:50 pm

    this is what I call modern art with modern objects…they look a bit like the Grand Theft Auto characters you see when You load hat game…just much better and hell yeah thats sweet az…

    Do you attend a lot of art galleries? and do you get sum percentage off or do you pay the same price as adults?

  23. durg on November 14, 2008 at 5:56 pm

    wow.. just wow.

  24. lynndarwinharris on November 14, 2008 at 4:37 pm

    Wow awsome detail. Your right the art says it all.

  25. Ezza on November 14, 2008 at 4:25 pm

    wow! i like how he’s got a realistic character and then there is something, like the flowers that are cartoon like but the detail is amazing!

  26. ShadowerLiltani on November 14, 2008 at 3:59 pm

    Beautiful details. I love that rich burnt sienna skin tone. Wonderful art, thank you for sharing.

    Tools of the trade: Randomness! I just learned this a minute ago and I think you’ll find it really interesting. If you have fruit flies, just put some balsamic vinegar in a clear glass, cover the top with some plastic held by a rubber-band, then put a hole in the plastic. Make a little paper funnel and stick it in the hole. I mean, a glass of dead fruit flies isn’t pretty but it gets rid of them.

  27. lucky_cat on November 14, 2008 at 3:36 pm

    It’s really difficult to find the words for that work. But maybe it’s not necessary. He has done a great time travel … definitely 5 stars, although I agree with some others here: post what you like to show us, not vice versa.
    @ Soyuneik: ROFL … Great!

  28. NoMoreSorrowGirl on November 14, 2008 at 2:44 pm

    WOW! I can’t find the right words to describe what I see…When you looking at it closely it feels like real dude looking back at you.HA!HA!…Is that a cherry blossom!? I love it…it is well detailed…and that NIKE shoes…mmmm…tasty…HA!HA!…Love the work …Yeah! Mr. Wiley is one of a kind…Take care Mike :)) Love Ya! :))

    PS: You should paint your MS/DC XANDER REMIX too and post it here lets see if who can get the five star :))

  29. Aline on November 14, 2008 at 2:34 pm

    glamourous

  30. Hawaii_LP_fan on November 14, 2008 at 2:13 pm

    My 1st impression as I thoughtfully viewed each beautiful oil piece, was Mr. Wiley’s love for nature. The images of the Louvre popped into my mind. The positions were oddly familiar. Sculptures of timeless marble that I saw in the Louvre! The grandeur of these pieces coupled with the striking attention to detail & heart-felt emotions certainly WOW’s you! Kind of like a “bam” of your senses! :o) I admire Mr. Wiley’s dedication & heart’s passion. It’s plain to see here! My fav pieces: “Christian Martyr Tarcisius” the emotion displays immovable faith. #2 “The Virigin Martyr St. Cecilia” this one provokes sadness. The sakura blossoms are beautiful! Thanks Mr. Mike for the 411 on Mr. Wiley..wow!

  31. LPAngel on November 14, 2008 at 2:12 pm

    Amazing art! so perfect, my favourite is the penultimate picture =). his art is so detailed. good post Mike =), iยดm gonna rate this post hehe๐Ÿ˜‰

  32. skindesbous on November 14, 2008 at 2:09 pm

    WOOOW amazing art O_O Wish I could see this art on my city:/ Hey, could you please answer LaKennyLP? The same happens to me, but, my problem is that I have a lot of ideas about playing drums, but, no idea about other instruments๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  33. LaKennyLP on November 14, 2008 at 1:58 pm

    Hey there Mike!๐Ÿ™‚

    This work is amazing, no doubt about it!!!
    Well, you’ve been talking about the basic paintin’ (which tips were sooooo good). I have one more question for you.

    I make my own music in my house (you have to know that Linkin Park is my inspiration, specially you…๐Ÿ™‚ ). I have so many ideas that are staying for be worked. That’s not the prob. I’ve got Ableton Live and I’ve been trying it, but… I don’t really know exactly where to start (start to work with the drum beats, the musical base or the lyrics). And that’s a serious problem to me, I swear! Ha! Could you explain what do you use to do? I’ll be so thanked Mike… :))) Thank you!!!

    -Mary (Spain)

  34. MS_Ineedyou on November 14, 2008 at 1:47 pm

    HOLY SHIT !!!!!!! THATS AMAZING !! He has REALLY good detail… The shoe laced one was amazing ! They’re really big xD Mike !!! How do you find this stuff !?!?!? xD I Love You Mike !! ;D WOAH ! I think thats the FIRST time that you have signed a post as ……………………………. -m instead of that sketched out MS thing that looks really cool๐Ÿ™‚ Have an AMAZING day ! xD Bye Mike๐Ÿ™‚

    —Brooke …:)

  35. cuz on November 14, 2008 at 1:03 pm

    Thanks for developing this site. Don’t worry–you know, quality is important, not quantity or time๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure you’ll do the rest when it’ll be working good.

    Those pieces are so good! The last one shows how huge they are… That’s impressive… The second from the end piece looks familiar–you have the same blouse, right? Which I love by the way.

    HA!๐Ÿ™‚

  36. TiffTiff33LP on November 14, 2008 at 12:54 pm

    OMG!!Dude it looks soooooo real,amazing,(mouth drops open in amazment)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!^^Breath taking…..^^

  38. Zillazilla on November 14, 2008 at 12:23 pm

    Wow what a coincidence… I was lookin at early 16th and 17th centuries art…Michelangelo and etc…But these art pieces are
    ASTOUNDING too…i like how Kehinde Wiley interreted the 1600s and 1700s art work into modern art!!!

  39. Jaclyn on November 14, 2008 at 12:22 pm

    O_O WoooooW!!!! Awesome connection of times and utter beauty of the paintings makes me speechless ( the art speaks for itself)

    PS Ratings stars are cool, ‘signing in’ became nicer. I can tell you now what of your posts I like more – LP album,your art, news and stories about Chester, other artists, hip hop videos… and Silence and Sirenes.

    Patientely waiting for the blog updates

  40. ninguem on November 14, 2008 at 11:52 am

    i read about california fire again, and i want know which you and your family and other band guys are ok, the fire is “trying” destroy residences of artists like oprah, michael douglas and others, ok they have money, but is horrible lose memories like pics, etc
    i knew which you was webdesigner of lp.com, and i wanna be webdesigner, and i want know some hints to how make a nice page, please explain this

  41. Estelwen on November 14, 2008 at 11:29 am

    This is indeed amazing! Could you please answer my question about “surrealism” (the cultural movement, i’m sure you know it)? I told you that most of your paintings looked surrealist to me especially the “Diamonds Spades Hearts & Clubs” exhibition, and i was asking if i was right (i’m far from being an expert), i also asked what you thought of Dali’s work?

  42. jessicahlin on November 14, 2008 at 11:16 am

    wow, amazing!๐Ÿ˜€ love the way he paints, he’s just amazing.

    btw.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNEdvQZACcE&feature=related is this really you?

  43. Chazyana on November 14, 2008 at 11:13 am

    Hello Mike! I thank you the fact that you give information of Chester’s health, because I see he has an Internet phobia๐Ÿ˜› …hehehehehehe…Tell him if you don’t forget that I write him something every day at LP network!! (you can check at his page of LP network and you can see it with your eyes xD) I don’t know if he read messages, and sometimes I stay for hours thinking about if he reads or not, reads or not..

    ohhh where is my education? I’m glad to “meet” you, Mike, my name is Ana, I’m from Spain; I’m Chazyana at LP network (and here). Greetings!

    PD: I write here too because I don’t know if you read posts of few many days ago. I hope you don’t mind… Another time..Greetings!

  44. colinreid on November 14, 2008 at 10:54 am

    Hey Mike. Hows things? I saw this random art at Kanye’s Blog thought you might like it’s some kind of painting of skull heads kind of what you have been doing on your art show. Something I thought you could prob add on to : ) heres the link

  45. Henna on November 14, 2008 at 9:09 am

    Wow, those paintings are really good. So detailed and life like. I could never paint like that lol, Wiley’s even got the light reflecting perfect. That’s one thing I really struggle with. Creating shadow is pretty easy but light isn’t. I’ve tried using lighter tones and white paint to indicate where there’s light shining but it doesn’t come out to the same standard as those paintings by Wiley. Do you have any tips on this Mike?
    Henna (England) xx

  46. miKer0cks on November 14, 2008 at 9:01 am

    Wow!!! Awesome!!! Really great drawings!!! I like the one with the nike shoes and the flowers the most๐Ÿ™‚ it’s pretty cool and different๐Ÿ˜€

  47. rockermeg on November 14, 2008 at 8:59 am

    Wow they’re amazing…he got so much detail into such a large painting; it looks amazing!
    Great idea! But I find all your posts interesting…this is gonna be hard
    Children in Need tonight (fun) I only watch it for Doctor Who hehee,,oh and its a good cause etc
    Thanks for the update!
    Good luck with the new music
    Its the weekend-hooray!!

  48. YuN_RoCks on November 14, 2008 at 8:48 am

    woah. you definitely used the right word: stunning. man those are HUGE! I wonder how long did it take him {Kehinde is male right?} to finish those, but mostly how the hell did he manage to do them! that bigness makes me think about Michelagelo working on the Sistine chapel. what a compliment for Kehinde LOL
    anyway, his realism is imbarassing, really, and not just the line, colors too! the shoes detail is shocking..

  49. Carla on November 14, 2008 at 7:12 am

    Oooh, maybe I should check it out on Saturday after Nationalo Portfolio Day. I have to say: that guy has some nice kicks. Large works like these always amaze me for their size. Especially if it’s mentioned that someone has owns it and just donated it for the exhibit, that really shocks me that it could fit into someone’s home even if they’re in panels. (as well as the fact that they have enough money to buy it xD) I’ve never attempted anything big as that, but I’m sure it’d be fun to put in the little details and stuff.

  50. sam4907 on November 14, 2008 at 7:07 am

    Earlier this year I got to see a couple of Wiley’s paintings at the Mint Museum of Art in NC. The painting titled Philip the Fair definitely caught my attention. Wish I could see more of his work in person, but a trip to NY isn’t possible right now.

  51. zahra on November 14, 2008 at 6:49 am

    the paintings made me feel very deep !!! it made me feel death!(in a good way) it had many different art worked in each painting and even tho there was death but there was life in them too!!!! i really liked the way the nicky shoes were and the blosom flowers/ i liked the way that biy tuches his heart!!!…..
    that was very nice thanx 4 the share mike…..xxxxxx)
    have a great day
    bye

  52. akitagirl on November 14, 2008 at 6:36 am

    These pieces are on an huge scale – do you prefer to work on a large or small scale – or just let the art dictate?
    Thanks for the the east coast post Mike, many of the shows you mention are on the west coast, it will be nice to be able to see this in person- The artwork is amazing – I will def. check it out.

  53. luciana on November 14, 2008 at 6:23 am

    wow…the artwork is so amazing…and the characters from paintings are looking so real.It’s so amazing how some people are so talented.by the way..in a paint is a man that is resembling with Kanye west…:)

  54. zimminator on November 14, 2008 at 6:22 am

    o my god. this is crazy. i wish i could see them up close. how come my state doesnt have any cool art exhibits? aw just wait til i move to cali. i wish i could draw like that.
    and mike, thank you for putting all this work into this site. im really glad that you try to make things easierand more fun for us๐Ÿ™‚ have a good day

  55. Philly_Willy on November 14, 2008 at 5:17 am

    Wow the detail is amazing, not my favourite stuff but I like the Jean-Antoine Houdon – Morphee one.
    Any mixtapes to recommend or maybe a site that has some other great mixtapes like the Jazzercidal Tendencies one by Cheapshot you posted a while ago?

  56. Meteora20 on November 14, 2008 at 4:16 am

    amazing artwork. i like the third one.thanks for sharing us, Mike.
    Have you ever seen, pics or art from Victoria Frances? if yes, what do you think about that?

    Take care Everyone:)

  57. annnalp on November 14, 2008 at 3:49 am

    Hello Mike, how are you for you and group? the pictures of artist are very beautiful, here not a long ago barged into one picture, it was written that this picture of your youth… is it a true you on it? if yes, how many old are you it was when this picture was done? if remember), thank you very much for ranie))))

  58. Gabry94LinkinParkfan23 on November 14, 2008 at 3:44 am

    hey Mike… awesome post nd really great job!!๐Ÿ™‚ cool artworks, i love ’em all!!๐Ÿ™‚ byeee x Gabry

    Nice Shinoda when do you decide to make a comic book? Have a nice day Nice shinoda

  60. Virga on November 14, 2008 at 3:27 am

    It’s really amazing. I’m just curiuos how much time he needed to do one of these paintings. Probably a lot… but the result is fantastic!

  61. Brittney on November 14, 2008 at 3:15 am

    Oh my gosh, the detail on those shoes is amazing. These are probably some of the best pieces of artwork I’ve ever seen. Awesome post :]

  62. Kalini on November 14, 2008 at 3:13 am

    If I was standing there in front those paintings, I would be completely obsessed of them. I would dive in this sea of flowers! Mike, you’ve found the right words: enormous and stunning! Krassie K.

  63. Shadow on November 14, 2008 at 2:34 am

    Quick and short:
    1) I fully agree to LVIX. Show us what YOU wanna show – that’s what we come here for!๐Ÿ˜‰
    2) I’m in love with the last but one painting. So amazing!!!!!

  64. asaulp on November 14, 2008 at 2:04 am

    Wow, this artwork is amazing – plotting man’s comforting reliance on the material world against what nature has to offer. Very Renaissance-influenced placements, which would open up a lot to chiaroscuro (which wasn’t used so drastically, but it’s there, especially in the painting on the right in the last picture). Such vivid colors! Your knack of bringing to light such unconventional artists shows dedication to your love of art, and I appreciate that, so much. More GE (Dies) and new 2009 album updates as soon as possible, please (:

  65. sassi_lp on November 14, 2008 at 1:55 am

    I’ve been there and they are really impressive when you stand in front of them, great detail too.
    ona note, I saw this video on amazon.de and WHAT THE HELL, BRAD CUT HIS HAIR!!??
    Now he’s no Bushman anymmore:( But still awesome of course, I bet he’ll let it grow during the recording process of the new record, he always does that doesn’t he?

  66. Chemist999 on November 14, 2008 at 1:53 am

    It’s funny but it seems uite strange to me. I’ve just never thought that someone could reproduce sculptory masterpieces of Rennaisance on canvas, and capture all the… emotions. Those flowers there have a great soothing effect, because if you’d look on the persons themselves, it wouldn’t be as “beautiful” feeling. Maybe because they’re so realistically painted, and because of their eyes. I’m glad he put the original pieces and his reproduction in one post, because this allows people to see the how similar and different they are at the same time. What the sculptures say with their posture, he replaces with real emotions on their face.

  67. ms_shock on November 14, 2008 at 1:45 am

    OH MY GODNESS!!!!! They’r SO HUGE!!!! And the style is very interesting, indeed. WOOOOW That’s a parody!! haha!!! COOL!!!! I’m shocked, it’s amazing!!!!!!! I really like it!!
    And YAY for the rating system!!!!

  68. Anene on November 14, 2008 at 1:24 am

    Mike, the artwork is amazing. They are so visually vivid. You can’t help but smile. I wish i had the talent for painting. I like the new rating system. Thanks for caring enough to add it.

  69. ThePrincess on November 14, 2008 at 1:16 am

    WOOOOOOW..THAT IS ‘F****N’ AMAZING…Absolutely stunning artwork. ..thanks for sharing with us..look the detailing on those shoes..its so natural…TWO THUMBS UP….bravo Prince Shinoda..

  70. soyuneik on November 14, 2008 at 1:15 am

    ::Gives Mike the Squinty Eyes and Smiles:: eh..no one else notices? sigh, such a lonely world I live in..
    All that debating… tsk what a waste if no one else notices. ;C)
    This shit is so vivid I can almost smell that new shoe smell on dudes kicks.

  71. Gizmo_Mogwai on November 14, 2008 at 1:15 am

    I agree with the guys, the paintings are just awesome! I’ve never seen anything like this… except your art, it’s always on the top for me=) thanks a bunch for sharing Mike!

  72. djf74 on November 14, 2008 at 1:14 am

    great painting – I wish I could see them for real

    for the rating system I agree with LVIX – Mike, its your Blog ! So put stuff on it that you would like to share with us. Mostly every time I enter your website you talk about something else ! Please dont change that.

  73. Aqua101 on November 14, 2008 at 1:10 am

    1) Wow! Iโ€™m speechless. Those are awesome & unforgettable images, portraits, colors & also the sizes. I adore them all.
    2) Mike, u should post things that u like to show us (not what we like to see). I agree w/ LVIX comment below. Its yr blog anyway. U should update more often these following things (in sequence) : Blog, Chat-Room (add this), Art (put all art issues/images in this section), Store, Photos & Video (update these sections from time to time), Music (add this also) & last Search function. Try to put things that we usually cannot/wont be able to find frm LP.com or other sites….I mean to say : It is basically everything more personal things from you, darling…:)

    i saw the rating thing yesterday, but i dont paint so to me that post wasnt particularly interesting, so i didnt rate it. man those pictures are HUGE. and they look amazing. oh question, can we only rate each post once? or will there be room for cheating?๐Ÿ™‚

    This is amazing stuff. The detail is outstanding. The size also adds to it, Artist Chuck Close used to make extra large images like these.

    Firstly, a ratings system has been implemented. Feel free to visit any of your favorite posts here on mikeshinoda.com and give them some stars…this will help me know which things you like to see more of. I intend to create a “top 5” list from the highest rated posts. …

    Mike… you don’t have to post things what we want to see. You have to post things you like to show!

    Those pieces are insane, I can’t even imagine where you start working on one of those. On another tangent, any new progress on GE:Dies? I am really looking forward to it.

    Good post though…Hybr1d_7h3ory

    Holy crap. Those people are standing next to that (could you imagine if that fell on them? Lawsuit, lmfao). That’s freaking huge. I can’t believe the detailing on those shoes. It’s so realistic. Wow. I can’t stop staring at it, haha. Nice. Thanks for that.
