Who is 'The Artful Fro' ?
Rachael Francis Hosten is a visual artist living in London who goes by the moniker 'The Artful Fro'
Since she can remember, drawing has been her love. Her mother bringing home her first box of crayons from the Crayola factory where she worked was her first memories.
Since then, Rachael has earned an HND in Graphic Design and a Foundation Diploma in Art and in 2015, she started working on vinyl records. Vinyl and art combines her two interests since she has a great affinity for music. She currently uses acrylic paint to hand-paint unique portraits on unwanted vinyl records, drawing inspiration from some of the most famous musicians, actors, filmmakers, and political personalities of all time.
As a consequence of her work, she has had the chance to meet and create artworks for some amazing people, including DJ Jazzy Jeff, Tyrese Gibson, Usain Bolt, Lord Finesse, Chuck D, Skyzoo, Big Daddy Kane, Masta Ace, Jason Momoa, Apollo Brown, Roxanne Shante, Monie Love, Robert Glasper, Shaggy, Snoop Dogg, Pete Rock, and CL Smooth. See her blog.
Rachael has exhibited her work in the United Kingdom, Europe and Internationally, for more details of her past and future exhibitions please go to exhibition page.
Her future plans ... to grace as many walls with her art as possible.
