Ghanaian artist, Kaki, relates to colours as living organisms which help heal us when, and wherever, we need them most. “And we need colours all the time. We are walking, talking colours.”
Her unique work is largely abstract expressionist style. Her work embodies the nuances of daily life, it’s effects on our emotions and the consequences it will produce in the near future if not dealt with - if no healing takes place within.
Her overwhelming zeal for emotion and sentiments of people in colours attracted her to people of diverse ethnicities and cultures. This opened her up to a world beyond her boundaries after graduating in Fine Art from her Ghanaian Art School.
She’s inspired by the ability to be thankful to God for life itself and the grace to breathe good air. Her rich colours are figures that render bold lights and shades. Because her work makes reference to art history, human nature and colour psychology, it can create a visual link to ideas on colours and their effects on the psyche which many seem to have been taken for granted.
She creates her unique styles through various mediums like brushes, palette knives, fingers and other tools she creates herself. Using acrylics, oils, pastels and other materials, Kaki paints on canvas and any other surface possible.
Kaki’s enigmatic expression of art speaks her beliefs, thoughts, poems and inspirations, compelling her audiences to solve the puzzle and help tell their own stories through her ideas.
