‘The Power of Girl’ featured at the top of this article, was commissioned by Nike as part of a series of murals. They’re just one of many commissions and collaborations that have helped Lakwena to realise her dream of taking her art beyond the gallery. It’s really important for her that work exists outside, beyond spaces where we normally view art.
There’s no stopping Lakwena and her infectious optimism. We can’t wait to see what she does next.
