“Art does not depend on someone prescribing a mainstream system. Art is freedom” – Kofi Agorsor Kofi Agorsor is a Ghanian born artist who attended the Ankle College of Art in Accra during 1989. Agorsor works predominantly in painting and sculpture but he also has a vibrant musical practice with a band called Agorsor Afro Band led by Nyornuwofia Agorsor. In his paintings, Agorsor uses pulsating colors that become an interpretation of the essence of a lived experience in modern Ghanaians. He is conceptually fixated on the duality which exists between the material world and the spiritual. Agorsor believes that he finds a cohesion between these two planes within his work. His Sculptures, on the other hand, are a physical embodiment of spontaneous orderliness and although, he claims that his work inhabits generic subject matters his own description of his subject begs to differ otherwise… “My work is generally about love and affection; about simple everyday situations like relationships, music, religion and being at peace with one’s self and the world at large”. Recently, he has participated in group exhibitions entitled “New Threads” (2017) which was held in Muse Temple in Lagos, Nigeria. He has participated in multiple solos and has exhibited work both internationally and locally.
