MVP x Kehinde Wiley

We are proud to have collaborated with celebrated artist Kehinde Wiley on some epic leather basketballs featuring Kehinde Wiley's 2017 painting, Death of St. Joseph.

Adapted specifically for this limited-edition basketball, Wiley’s painting derives its ideation from 18th Century classical biblical portraiture and the enigmatic art history of St. Joseph, boldly reimagined to engage with a contemporary audience.  The design emphasis is on the model’s open hand, inviting multi-cultural conversation and connection between time and place.

These basketballs have been crafted with serious balling in mind with precision stitching & NBA level inner bladders for performance on the court.

The proceeds from your purchase support Black Rock Senegal, Wiley's artist in residence program in Dakar, Senegal.
