Lot Essay

“My work is always about representation—documenting, celebrating, and finding new ways to approach blackness. … I am always looking for new ways to celebrate and tell the story of the characters I paint.”
(Amoako Boafo quoted in an interview with Belinda Kazeem-Kaminski in "Amoako Boafo by Belinda Kazeem-Kaminski," BOMB Magazine, 25 August 2020).
