Meditation I (2014)
Meet @msadjei. We became friends while I was living in Ghana earlier this year, thanks to @oseiduro. I was struck by her demeanor, the sound of her voice, and those cheekbones! I was already working with this Audre Lorde quote for my mural in Accra, “I AM DELIBERATE AND AFRAID OF NOTHING.” Learning about all the interesting things Maame was doing convinced me to also do a portrait of her using this text. #portraitprofile #narrativesandmeditations #writing #papillion

  • Last year was my first time at Accra’s ChaleWote Street Arts Festival and it was such an amazing experience for me that I’d been looking forward to this years for the last 6 months.

    Both days ( August 23rd and 24th) reminded me of why I love the arts and why i’m happy to be living in Accra. Accra Dot Alt has managed to really start what can only be a revolution in the way Ghanaians experience and access the arts. 

    The festival is an amalgamation of fashion, food, visual and performing arts and a great blending of all the different segments of the city.

    With the theme this year being “Death: An Eternal dream into limitless rebirth” I took the opportunity as a repurposing/refurbishing junkie to contribute to the festival by upcyling old soda crates into functional potted plant benches. I’m completely honored to have my work so close to so many insanely gifted artists.

    This festival is history in the making and definitely set to be one of the biggest on the continent. If you missed it this year you MUST make your way to Accra for the next one.

  • Im so excited about contributing again to this years #Chalewote2014 arts festival. I repurpose/redesign furniture as a very random hobby and this year i’m turning wooden soda crates into functional benches. Can’t wait for everyone to see the final product on August 23rd and 24th in James Town, Accra. If you’re in Accra you MUST come through! #Arts #Ghana #ChaleWoteArtsFestival #AccraDotAlt
