Benjamin Bio

In today’s world of diverse identities as subject of Benjamin Bio’s paintings. Benjamin sees spaces and environment as sacred site with forces that shapes or nurtures individuals which serves as inspiration for his works. It is with this that led him to explore spaces around him which he uses pigments from organic materials and employ borrowed techniques from these spaces of which he allows the spaces he works in to inform his paintings through his processes. He beliefs the organic materials mostly plants in these spaces are enrich with histories and stories it has accumulated over time and since it is about the identity of the space he wishes to project, he allows the materials, techniques and forms he employ in his process to manifest in his experiments. “I am just a helping hand in the executing process. I don’t force the work to be of my taste. I just employ the things I see in the space and these things manifest themselves as they see fit, and that’s them, their portrait, their identity.” he says, and his paintings projects that goal. The artist is a student of KNUST who works and lives in Kumasi, Ghana.

Love Cycle - Richmond Agamelah

Richmond used mainly acrylics for these series and applies his paint with straight-edged plastic objects like phone cards, credit cards and broken rulers. His subject matter is still dominated by black men, women and children. He also leaves out patches of blank undercoat and allows them to freely and intentionally remain on portions of the faces of his subjects. The collection seeks to promote black culture. A culture that authentically brings out all the human emotional attributes of love, affection, deceit, benevolence, pretence, heartbreak, empathy, hate, etc. Agamelah’s sense of colour, his attention to harmony and space, his love for rhythm and his general sense of freedom have been enhanced in these new works to create a more pleasant overall impact than before.
