Raphael Adjetey Adjei Mayne, RAAM as he is known professionally, is an artist whose mediums span from the stretched linen of a canvas and the cotton of a T-shirt to the pixels of a screen and the sound waves of his favorite place.
RAAM combines traditional influences of his native Ghana with the modern aesthetic of his cosmopolitan life in Germany. His paintings capture the essence of a moment in simple detail evoking peaceful reflection and in colorful movements filled with positive energy. For the AFUTUMIX line, RAAM builds on his craftsmanship as a selftaught fashion designer with over a decade of experience to create completely unique garments from a MIXED and MATCHED patchwork of materials, including his own paintings.
For RAAM the clothes that he creates are not only items to be worn, rather each piece is a one -of-a-kind work of art to be cherished. With his never ending commitment to creativity, it is always a surprise to see what he will make next.
