DERRICK.O.BOATENG

174/200

Derrick Ofosu Boateng is a fine art photographer and practitioner of an African Art movement that create through the lens of Hue-ism. Inspired by the richness of the African lifestyle, Boateng's contemporary photography aims to influence the world’s perception of Africa and its art, often viewed through a limited lens in film and media. Through his art, Boateng is inspired to represent the colour beauty and visual poetry of everyday African culture, lifestyles and behaviors thereby changing the story that is told of Africa. Boateng believes that though taken in Ghana, the intimate images he captures are representation of life anywhere on the continent. In the global art industry, Africa is still underrepresented, and the artist strives to connect with an international audience through the reach of his Instagram account.




About the project

"We are using colour and art to tell an African story of unity. The theme for my trunk comes from a popular African proverb ‘two heads are better than one’."
