Lakwena

Lakwena’s iconic, kaleidoscopic work is informed by the use of decoration as a means of communication. As a form of expression within a political world, Lakwena explores how the use of adornment in worship and myth-making translates into contemporary popular culture. 

Central to her practice are words, used as both images and anchors of meaning, borrowing from the techniques and conventions of traditional sign-writing and contemporary graphic design. 

With an aesthetic that draws upon her formative years in Addis Ababa, Nairobi and her native London, Lakwena has created epic outdoor murals in diverse cities from Miami to London, creating bold messages of hope in urban landscapes.
