Raphael Adjetey 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 linen 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, Mayne combines the traditional influences of his homeland Ghana with the modern aesthetic. 

 

Since 2013, Raphael Adjetey Mayne lives and works in Germany.
