Photograph of painting by Kehinde Wiley
Functionality: the photograph/painting uses contradictions in it—black men in urban clothing painted in a scenery and with postures that they wouldn't normally be associated with. Bucks stereotypes.
Aesthetic beauty: the feathering, the use of small details, like the blue bird, present an aesthetic beauty in contrast with the subject in street clothing.
Communication: the photo/painting communicates how things/people can be perceived differently when taken out of their natural setting.
Decorative and Entertainment value: the photo/painting is decorative because of the pattering, feathering. The entertainment value is the contradiction or unusual subject in the scenery.
