Raphael now lives and works in Germany since 2013 ,is an artist whose mediums span from the stretched linen of a canvas and the cotton of African fabrics. The artist builds on his craftsmanship as a self taught working with the sewing machine,over a decade of experience to create completely unique style from a mixed matched patch work of African materials on the canvas. To the pixels of brush and the sound waves of his favorite adinkra symbols from west Africa. Mayne combines traditional influences of his native Ghana with the modern aesthetic. His works capture the essence of a moment in simple detail evoking peaceful reflection and in colorful movements filled with positive energy.(text ArtCo Gallery)
