Kwesi Botchway

Kwesi Botchway, born in Nima/Accra, Ghana, is a multidisciplinary Artist and, like so many talented creatives of his generation, a product of Ghanatta College of Arts and Design. His creative focus is in depicting compelling figurative portrait paintings from different generations. His point of focus is the Eyes, Nose and Mouth which is where human emotions are best portrayed, He believes that it helps us better visually experience one another’s feelings; an exchange of information without using words.

Kwesi`s paintings help create an intriguing dialogue between the subject’s message and the viewer. His work compels the viewer to become physically and emotionally invested in the subject’s story. He aims to capture the spirit, essence and heritage of his subjects and uses this as an opportunity to lend the world a glance into the lives and struggles of people whose stories are yet to be fully told. Therefore his paintings are meant to trigger emotions of pride or shame, honour or disgust and sometimes even humour. It’s all about the story of his subjects, which words cannot fully explain.
