Raphael Adjetey Adjei Mayne

Raphael Adjetey Adjei Mayne was born 1983 in Accra-Ghana.
He studied at the Ghanatta College of Art and Design in Accra-Ghana. Mayne is an artist whose mediums span from the stretched line of a canvas to the cotton of African fabrics. The artist builds on his craftsmanship as a self-taught; working with the sewing machine and over a decade of experience to create an utterly unique style - to bring a mixed matched patchwork of African materials to the canvas. Using Adinkra symbols from West Africa, His paintings on canvas and paper capture the essence of a moment in simple detail evoking peaceful reflection and in colorful movements filled with positive energy. Mayne combines the traditional influences of his homeland Ghana with the modern aesthetic. Since 2013, Raphael Adjetey Adjei Mayne lives and works in Germany.
