Kofi Awuyah is a Ghanaian painter born in 1988.
Hispractice includes several mediums such as painting, sculpture and installation. He explores a range of themes from culture to religion, politics, human existence, life, with predominantly the use of acrylic, oil and charcoal on canvas. After high school, Awuyah enrolled in Business School. However, as he was spending all of his time painting with local artists, he eventually changed direction and decided to fully dedicate to the development of his artistic career by studying Fine Arts at the Vision Art College.
Kofi does not merely mirror the socio-political realities that surround him, he instead engages and challenges them with his work by daring to confront difficult themes such as his community’s oppression over the years. He has exhibited in Burkina Faso, Togo, Ivory Coast and Denmark and recently had his solo show at Gallery 1957, Accra.
