About Artist: Maxwell Boadi
Maxwell Boadi is a Ghanaian artist, born, raised and currently based in Accra, Ghana. He studied at the Ghanatta College of Arts and Design, graduating with a diploma in Fine Arts. He is extensively inspired by the people and environment he lives in. Boadi encompasses a wide variety of themes – portraits inspired by friends, family and neighbours, artworks exploring his Christian faith and canvases detailing the urban evolution of the Accra landscape. He is bold, adventurous and has an artistic maturity that sets him apart from his contemporaries. His palette is energetic bringing a sense of urgency to his themes. He uses the palette knife to achieve his artistic vision, the bold rhythmic strokes and monotonous colours are the foundations of his work. It’s simple yet, soulfully striking.
