About the Painting
About the Artist : Kwami Da Costa
Kwami Da Costa is a contemporary artist, born in 1980, in the city of Lome’, Togo, and currently resides in Dakar, Senegal. His artistic practice includes painting and sculptures. His work focuses on the intersectional dynamics of the human family, cultural rights we partake in, our respect for the environment, and each other.
Da Costa employs contemporary figurative and portrait paintings to relay his eloquent conversations on human interactions. The facial and bodily features of his figurines are broken up and reassembled to create abstraction that blazingly convey human emotions in a striking manner to viewers of his work. His use of vibrant colors to intelligently combine the fragmented abstraction into a cohesive form is a signature of style using acrylics, pastels, and oil paint on canvas.
Kwami Da Costa recieved his artistic training at Sambiani Kassan studio. His work is featured in collections across Africa and Europe.
