Lot Essay

“There has to be something organic that connects me to the person I paint. If I don't connect I cannot paint. With some of my pictures I know the people I paint in person. In that case it’s a very intimate process where every movement, every colour and every brushstroke I make is based on that relationship.” - Amoako Boafo
