    Murals and graffiti seen depicted, is one of the many ways artists choose to illustrate their self expression 
Slide 1-3: “Neequaye ‘Dreph’ Dsane is a British Ghanaian artist based in London, and popularly known for his large-scale portrait paintings and oil portraits.

Dreph describes his work as a mixture of many elements and claims his work draws inspiration from 1980s British underground comics such as 2000 AD, the dramatic lighting of old masters such as Caravaggio and the energy and scale of 1970s New York subway graffiti. ‘You Are Enough’ is a series of portraits painted across London paying tribute your friends, who are doing amazing things for their communities and society at large. ‘You Are Enough’ is primarily about empowerment of women. I wanted to celebrate and show appreciation to the women in my life.

The women featured in your series have some both amazing and equally inspiring stories”

Slide 4-6: 
Murals-
•(The) flower came out •I’m spring, you’re flower(and You have bloomed in me)
•You will be blessing “27-year-old Korean graffiti writer and artist, Christian (Royal Dog) has merged two different cultures and brought them together so beautifully, that we suddenly can't imagine a world where this cultural blend didn't exist.

With delicate words and striking portraits, Royal Dog's imagery brings out the beauty in both black women and traditional Korean dress “Hanbok”, creating an unexpected but stunning combination.

Originally from Seoul, Korea, Royal Dog moved to the US to paint because according to him, "the situation in Korea is not so good for painters or graffiti artists. Now based in LA, Royal Dog finds it to be the perfect place for graffiti.

Royal Dog's works of art speak so true on the struggles of racism and sexism that black women go through and yet, still they come out of these situations magical, because black women are magic.” IG: royaldog_ (Damilola Odufuwa, konbini.com)

Top #Dreph posts

    Last summer, stunning murals of black women began to appear on the walls of London buildings. These portraits, the work of street artist Neequaye “Dreph” Dsane, highlighted the diversity of London, and the UK more broadly, while creating a space for everyday women of color and their stories. Now, Dreph is back with another powerful portrait series — and this time, he’s shining a light on immigrants. Simply called “Migration,” Dreph’s newest collection of portraits has thus far featured three individuals. All portraying first-generation immigrants, these works are the artist’s attempt to capture the diversity and depth of the many inspiring immigrants working to move the UK forward. Photographed here is Dreph's mural for Michael John, a Grenadian vendor at Brixton Market, who was recently honored by the city council for his community engagement. Go to the link in bio to read more about this stunning and impactful project.⠀
