Ghanaian figurative and portraiture painter, Annan Affotey, has landed a deal with American fashion brand, Tommy Hilfiger, for the company's new TommyXRomeo collection mural project.

The UK-based Ghanaian painter's love for cultural diversity is easily recognised in his portraits, which earned him the attention of the international powerhouse fashion brand.

Shaped by his experiences living in Ghana, Europe, and the United States, Affortey uses his signature style of bold colours, thick paint, and red eyes to portray emotion and identity, said a message issued on the company's website.
