As far as Fashion Illustrators go, Papa Oppong Bediako is easily my favorite African illustrator. His work is stellar and innovative and he is quite the designer, garnering collaborative collaborations with global giants Vlisco and Swarovski Ghana. For someone so young, he has done so much, it’s mind boggling. So imagine my surprise and excitement when I found out that Papa has an interview on Youtube. I am all for creatives speaking up about their inspirations and Papa represents himself quite well.
The host of the show he was interviewed on left a lot to be desired but Papa was a delight.
