The Artist Reborn
Kwame Akpokavi | ART
Original African mixed-media fine artwork and prints from renowned Ghanaian artist Kwame Akpokavi.
Kwame’s vibrant and intricate fabric collages beautifully combine his traditional Ghanaian roots with Modernism. His art uses imagery from both contemporary modern sources and Black African culture to question his identity and explore global issues. Through large canvases filled with striking colours, textures and shapes derived from sources such as nature, religion and popular culture, his works challenge us to reflect on the beauty, joy, complexity and mystery of life.
