Wha’ Gwan?

After our first ‘Wha Gwan?’ piece was done on a found sign and we were commissioned to recreate it on paper for someone so set to work cleaning the image up a little and adding a little colour. For the uninitiated, the phrase ‘Wha gwan’ (whaa gwaan) means ‘what’s going on’ in Jamaican Patois. The spelling varies but the meaning does not change. As we live in Brixton this is not an unusual phrase to hear around the place.

As with our other version I have included a small Lion of Judah motif on there as a nod to Haile Selassie (we have cut a stencil of him before as part of our celebrity heads series – see here).

Jah Rastafari!
