Winfred Nana Amoah

Painter, 1996, Hohoe, Ghana

Winfred Nana Amoah (born 18 march 1996, Hohoe Ghana) is a Hohoe based artist whose media of practice include plastics, textiles, used recharge cards, research articles, newspapers and acrylic on canvas. Amoah uses these materials to explore personal identities and community belonging, particularly in the contemporary Ghanaian context. Amoah series of mixed media depicts the faces of some of the Hohoe- dwelling people. The face as a universal concept is a communicative event. Seeing these faces we are left to be “accomplices” in making meaning of these pro-communicative gestures. We see the smile and we assume they are happy. When they are stern, we wonder what they might be thinking.
