Lakwena’s iconic, kaleidoscopic work is informed by the use of decoration as means of communication. Lakwena explores how the use of adornment translates into contemporary pop-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 across the globe creating bold messages of hope in urban landscapes.
