Whitely is a visual artist and curator based in New York City.
Apart from his current project, Whitely is best known for his presidential sculpture. Installed in 2016 in New York's Central Park during Donald Trump’s election campaign, the work imagines what Trump's tombstone would look and ready like.
With the Trump chapter concluded, Whitely is busying himself with another public figure: Justin Bieber. However instead of making art about him, the last few months have seen Whitely painting as the character Justin Bieber.
