THE ARTIST AS ALCHEMIST
It is impossible to talk about Amoako Boafo without superlatives. Wherever you look, whatever you hear, that's what it's all about: figures and records. For Amoako Boafo is a painter, with a style comparable to the great tradition of portraitists; those he will appropriate and whose course he will reorient.
"The way that the painter has to touch the canvas, to print directly his body on it, awakens the ancestral imaginary buried."
