Spike Lee, Carmelo Anthony and Swizz Beatz feature in Kehinde Wiley's 2014 portrait series "Modern Kings of Culture", with each picture being one of a limited edition of two. Carmelo Anthony is featured with a longsword and a robe, while Spike Lee has a hatchet and hunting garb, while Swizz Beatz has a Great Dane and elaborately decorated jacket (which is not a knock-off of Joseph's Technicolor Dreamcoat). Each picture is estimated to be worth somewhere between $8,000-12,000 in the auction taking place on Paddle8.com; even if you've no intention of bidding the photos are well worth a look!

I wish my old school photos were taken like this.
