Lakwena graduated...

from the London College of Communication in 2009 and has since worked as a freelance graphic artist. Inspired by the human instinct for adornment and embellishment, and their use and power as a means of communication, much of Lakwena’s work is explores of how this decorative instinct is shown through popular culture and within the urban environment.

She is based in Hackney, London, and her work includes painting, illustration, graphic design, set design, textile design, sign-writing and more.

For the Women on the Walls program for Art Basel 2013 Lakwena not only painted a mural but also created the invitation and logo for the program. Her mural, which states I Remember Paradise, stays true to her aesthetic and is strikingly bold and graphic.
