Dennis Owusu-Ansah is a New York-based Ghanaian artist whose pop art images are taking Instagram by storm. The artist told CNN "the piece I'm most proud of is the "Kanye West and Kim Kardashian" painting, because it was very challenging. I lost hope and almost gave up on that piece because it wasn't coming out as I expected. I worked on this painting for four days straight."
