Raphael Adjetey Adjei Mayne’s paintings on canvas or cardboard are characterized by a colorful mix of oil pastel, chalk and acrylic, along with African Wax prints and recycled fabrics. The people he portrays float in front of dynamic flower fields, hover above the vibrating monochrome color panels. In Mayne’s works the West African Adinkra fabrics appear in exchange with pop culture motifs, logos and brands as well as industrial textiles such as polyester, thus combining the traditional influences of the artist’s homeland Ghana with contemporaneity.
