Artists Tayewo and Kehinde Oyedej
Medium On Fabric
Tayewo and Kehinde Oyedeji paintings are reproduced three times.They are very difficult to repaint to look just like in the pictures, but they will be very similar. You can only achieve an identical reproduction when they are prints. They may be a reproduction, but they are still originals.
Tayewo and Kehinde have decided to reproduce their works a certain number of times because not many people are ready to buy an original out-rightly which of course increases the cost.
This painting will take approximately 2 weeks to complete.
