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.
