We are pleased to present a video of Amoako Boafo guiding the viewers through his solo exhibition, I STAND BY ME.
The large paintings using photo transfer compositions in I STAND BY ME mark a significant development in his technique. Concerned with a constant need to redefine new aesthetic and visual nomenclatures and to explore different ways of expressing themes; the artist emphasizes atmospheric naturalism and the impressionist rendering of motion. Boafo uses painting as an instrument for navigating the complexities of human experiences and depicting a vivid sense of each subject’s presence in the world.
