Amoako Boafo creates highly intimate portraits rendered in deeply textured paint and a rich color palette. The resulting paintings are sincere portrayals of friends and peers, from both his home country of Ghana, his current host country of Vienna, and many places in between. His powerful, concise style expresses the vibrancy of daily life with an easy familiarity, touching on topics such as community, social and political struggles, and the intimacy between like-minded friends.
