Dreph Paints Nana Yaa Sakyibea Portrait in Brick Lane
Street artist Neequaye Dreph celebrates unsung black heroes and heroines by painting their portraits around the city. Heavily influenced by 1980s comic culture and 1970s New York graffiti, the artist has been very busy over the last six months. Portraits have appeared around East London featuring a variety of people relatively unknown to the wider community in the UK. This portrait celebrates fashion and furniture designer Nana Yaa Sakyibea. Based in Busua, Ghana, the entrepreneur has worked various positions but enjoys producing clothes and furniture for people that actually appreciate her work.
