Signed 'Agorsor' (lower right)
Ghanaian painter Kofi Agorsor’s work stands as a joyous expression of color and form. He uses bold and vibrant colors to portray the daily lives of people in modernizing Ghana often in animated dynamics that is striking and modern. His canvases can be sparsely populated or they may be crowded, like in the present lot. Inhabited by a crowd of glitterati at a social event, it is rendered in gestural and semi-abstracted manner, woven with visual stories as rich as the African culture that serves as his inspiration.
