Papa Oppong Bediako is a fashion and design student at the Radford University college, East Legon, Ghana. Born and raised in Dansoman Accra, Ghana, he has 2 brothers and one sister. Drawing came about for Papa Oppong when he was a young boy where he drew on his school books, desks and school walls, which he would most of the time get in trouble for.
“People would ask me to draw them and now that I am older, I hear my family members saying that I used to like watching runway shows. Plus in my primary school days, I always had my own opinion about my look when my mother put clothes on me. Nowadays, I give my mum clothing advice and I even have a strong opinion on what she wears.”- Oppong
Papa Oppong further developed his taste in fashion during junior high school. He started his course in Visual Arts at Achimota School, where he studied textiles & literature.
His illustrations of celebrities have definitely caught their attention. Rihanna and Amber Rose, among others, have retweeted and given shout outs to the young talented artist. His work can be seen on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
