According to Karo Akpokiere, the renowned Nigerian illustrator, the African aesthetic can be seen differently. That’s why for his collaboration with Vlisco for the Vlisco&co Lagos event, he focused on deconstructing Vlisco patterns and storytelling through these patterns. Watch the interview with him here.


‘Six stories of disintegration’ is a collaborative project between Karo Akpokiere and Ayo Arigbabu centered around reinterpreting six classic Vlisco designs. The project formed a contribution to the first edition of the Vlisco&co event in Lagos, initiated by Vlisco and organized by A White Space Creative Agency.
