To celebrate the mid year at Ahima, we’re championing the Iconic Ghanaian symbols we all know and love, the Adinkra. The cultural significance and its messages of positivity is what inspired our much-loved Signature Collection. This month, we set out styling the Ghanaian British Artist Sarah Owusu, who was recently featured in Forbes 30 under 30 list.
Sarah’s work is very striking and colorful. Primarily focusing on portraiture, across her work, you will also find assertion of both her Black and African-ness primarily through her choice of subjects. Her bright, abstract and sometimes distorted portraits of herself, prominent figures continue to help reclaim Africa’s rich history, culture and heritage. Be sure to check out more of her work at Owusuism.
We love how Sarah styles her Ahima Jewellery as she goes about her work as a full time Artist.
