rekaone photos downloadRecent private commission(work in progress) πŸ”¨πŸ”¨The last couple of months I have been locked away in my studio, taking a nice break from the many mural festivals. Currently working on a new series of large-scale canvas works, focusing on new compostisitions and a much needed change experimenting with muted colour palettes. I have been enjoying the change - evolution is king.#wip #studiosessions #art #artwork #rekaone #reka #jamesreka
