Product info

For too long, Black figures have bene largely absent in the world of Western art — but that norm is now being challenged by contemporary artists like Amoako Boafo. Explore the oeuvre of this emerging Ghanaian painter in the very first survey of his work, Amoako Boafo. This impressive monograph is filled with over 140 of the artist’s portraits from 2017 to 2021, which all exclusively portray individuals from the African diaspora and beyond. With their bold colors and patterns and pops of unique, finger-painted texture, these powerful and vibrant pieces elevate Black representation and subjectivity in all its diversity and complexity, inviting the viewer to consider ideas of Black erasure, autonomy and empowerment while also challenging other portrayals that have objectified or dehumanized Blackness. Interspersed throughout these works, you’ll also find illuminating essays from Osei Bonsu and Rachel Cargle, original poems from Mutombo Da Poet and Aja Monet and an insightful conversation with the artist himself from Paul Schimmel. A captivating look into the practice of one of the most influential painters of our time, Amoako Boafo is a moving celebration of Blackness that is sure to inspire art-lovers and makers of all mediums and backgrounds.
