Neequaye Dreph Dsane, an artist from Nottingham decided to pay homage to the first African-American first lady with the giant artwork on the side of an M&S supermarket. Going by the name Dreph, he created the work in a collaboration project with Penguin Random House, to celebrate the upcoming release of Obama’s autobiography Becoming, which will be released on November 13.
“Michelle Obama is undoubtedly an inspiration to many as she continues to use her voice to speak on pressing societal issues that are close to her heart, particularly issues that affect young people within our global community,” wDrephrk told The Evening Standard. “I feel that it’s important for us all to have visible, relatable and progressive people to model ourselves on and to see ourselves reflected in. Michelle Obama is always open in giving us an insight into what it looks like to push through and forge our own paths.”
