Bold statements and bright colors are at the heart of Lakwena's work. She primarily paints in public spaces and in this way brings art to people who might not otherwise have access to it. The cooperation with MINI began two years ago with this approach. Most recently, she painted a previously gray high-rise facade in Munich during the IAA Mobility 2021 and expressed joie de vivre and the central motto of MINI with her mural "BIG LOVE".

For the London-born artist, British culture is very much influenced by the exchanges of long-distance travel that many people have undertaken. The design of the MINI Recharged Lakwena celebrates the diverse journeys and paths of different people with colorful patterns and colors. “I hope this MINI Recharged makes people feel good and puts a smile on their faces. This MINI is a festival of colors for cultures,” explains the artist. This makes the work of art an ideal match for this year's European Championships, which will be held from August 11th to 21st all over Munich. The competitions, in which athletes compete in nine different disciplines, stand for mutual respect, tolerance and diversity.
