Story Behind the Art:
'I come from the Ashanti Kingdom, renowned for kente weaving. My father, a master weaver, started teaching me when I was a young,' recalls Alex Boakye. 'A kente weave includes the blend of five colorful yarns, be it silk, cotton or rayon. I am motivated to create new designs whilst I sit quietly listening to traditional African music. I am inspired by the desire to see my homeland emancipate from economic woes, hoping people around the world appreciate the beautiful things that come from Africa.'
