Neequaye Dreph Dsane (b. 1973, Nottingham, England) is a versatile visual artist working across a wide range of media. With a focus on painting the human figure, he is best known for his large-scale murals and oil paintings. Dreph’s work attempts to present an alternative narrative, and is often a tribute those he views to be living unsung heroes and heroines. Dreph’s honesty, sensibility and bold use of colour bring his subjects to life. He is influenced, as much by 80s British underground comic books and New York subway art as he is the old masters. After 3 decades of street based painting, Dreph’s work can be found in Asia, Africa, the UAE, Central, South and North America and throughout Europe. Dreph is an Illustration lecturer at Portsmouth University and a former secondary school art teacher. He lives and works in London. Find out more at: dreph.co.uk
