Real wonder women take to the streets – in pictures

Artist Neequaye Dreph Dsane paints huge, beautiful pictures that celebrate black women's stories in London

London-based Ghanaian artist Neequaye Dreph Dsane has been busy adorning the capital's walls with large, beautifully painted images of women of African and Carribbean origin as part of his You Are Enough series. The 43-year-old street artist aims to inspire and celebrate “amazing women who are not given the visibility they deserve”, by utilising the power of a very public art form to shine a light and empower. “Through the paintings and subjects' backstories, I am paying tribute to ordinary women who do extraordinary work for the betterment of their communities and society,” he says.
