An award-winning Kensal Rise artist ended 2018 with yet another trophy in recognition of his thought provoking installations.
Eugene Ankomah, 38, who lives in Mount Pleasant, was awarded the BEFFTA (Black Entertainment Film Fashion Television and Arts) People’s Choice award 2018 at an event on December 1.
His latest project, Re-Claim: Memories Lived, is an interactive hard-hitting installation on eradicating knife crime which he hopes to bring to Capital City Academy.
In December 2017 the father-of-three won the Best Creative Artist category at the Black British Entertainment (BBE) Awards.
He said: “Receiving this award was quite exciting, but emotional for me.
