Spray can in hand perched halfway up a ladder, Neequaye Dreph Dsane applied the final touches of color to his latest mural enlivening an otherwise drab side street in east London. The once-dingy area is now a hipster hangout and home to the second in a series of portraits by the British-Ghanaian artist, known as Dreph.MarrakechDreph's latest mural depicts Hassan Hajjaj, a British-Moroccan artist who divides his time between the two countries and has had an office-showroom-shop in Shoreditch since 2005 .In the mural – nearly 3 meters high and over 6 meters wide – Hajjaj poses intensely, his greying beard intricately captured with speckles of white spray paint, framed by an eye-catching purple background.Signature styleDreph completed the first piece in the new project last year: a 6.7-meter-high mural towering over central Brixton, a fast-gentrifying south London neighborhood long home to British-Caribbean and British-African communities.
