Dear West African Wo(Man),
If graffiti were clothes and I were to art you up, spray you into an expression of myself or you, what would it look like, what would it be, whose work would it resemble, who would it belong to? Verily verily I say unto you, what you would be is an SRK piece, created in the image and likeness of Senegalese designer, Selly Raby Kane.
Selly Raby Kane (SRK) creates pieces that fuse the traditional Senegalese colorful wax attires with an edgy Haute-Funk twist, one so unique and well branded, it is easy to spot an SRK piece miles away.
