Raphael collects youthful patterns and fabrics from villages in Ghana to create dynamic portraits. Based on childhood memories, Raphael uses storytelling to compare past and present.
Originally from Ghana, he exhibits his work in New York and San Francisco and lives in Cologne, Germany. His work can be found in the MuCEM Collection, Marseille.
Raphael has been taking over the Blank White Space Instagram feed throughout the week to show the progress of his piece each day.
