#DITakeover on Instagram: Lakwena Maciver

Lakwena Maciver went large on our Instagram account with her murals of kaleidoscopic colours and bold patterns.

Faith47’s ghostly creatures metamorphosed into splashes of neon colour and dizzy geometric pattern when London-based street artist Lakwena Maciver took over our Instagram account last week.

Maciver grew up predominantly in England but she is inspired by her African roots (her father is Ugandan).

Maciver has taken her technicolour street art around the globe, painting titanic murals of swirling colour from Miami to Vienna and London to Las Vegas.

Her #DItakeover featured the painting of a new mural in Shoreditch, London for Nike Women.

This week, Jens Martin Skibsted is taking over our account. Skibsted is the bicycle designer for his company Biomega, the founding partner of Skibsted Ideation and the co-founder of KiBiSi with Bjarke Ingels and Lars Larsen.
