Amoako Boafo: I Stand By Me
September 10, 2020 - October 24, 2020
Mariane Ibrahim Gallery:
437 N Paulina St,
Chicago, IL 60622

The up-and-coming Ghanaian artist uses painting as an instrument to navigate the complexities of human experience and depict a vivid sense of each subject’s presence in the world—an approach that resonated with Dior Homme, who enlisted Boafo for a recent collection. For his first solo exhibition at Mariane Ibrahim Gallery, an ascendant purveyor of African art, Boafo fine-tunes his signature finger-painting technique, enabling his subjects to pulse with energy and redefine how Black people are constructing their own identities.
