Ghanaian artist, Emmanuel Apraku of Ray Styles Studio has caught the attention and admiration of superstar actor, Will Smith.
The artist, who is popularly known for his works under the name ‘PenciledCelebrities‘ was mentioned in Will Smith’s collection of ‘Bad Boys’ inspired arts on the internet.
He wrote: “I am floored by all the beautiful, amazing, inspired @badboys art y’all have been posting. Thank you thank you THANK YOU!”
PenciledCelebrities, a team made up Emmanuel Apraku, Kwadwo Bediako and Richard Darkey, have been getting global acclaim for their fun representation of celebrity culture as well as their take on global issues.
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence teamed up once again for their third buddy cop installment this past weekend: Bad Boys for Life. Turns out the two have retained their box office prowess, as the film brought in $62.5 million over the three-day weekend and $73 million over the four-day holiday weekend. Both sums easily ranked No. 1 at the domestic box office.
On top of that, Bad Boys for Life pulled in $39 million from overseas showings, bringing the film’s worldwide total to $112 million. Not bad for four days in theaters.
