"I like to paint. I work by myself and enjoy what I do.
"I'm Kwame Amoa Bonsu. My friends say I'm a quiet guy, friendly and very positive.
"My background is in textiles. I used to cut various pieces of cloth into small squares or rectangles and join them to form a new cloth. I then realized that I could use these squares or rectangles to form images on the canvas — a kind of cubism or art of cubism. This is what led me to paint.
"I took classes at home from a teacher from Ankle College of Arts. To master my art, I learned body anatomy.
"My materials are simple ones — canvas and acrylic paint. I buy them at the market.
"While painting, I look out for variety, rhythm, balance, contrast, repetition, scale, harmony and unity. The technique I use is my favorite part of this work.
"I faced a very challenging moment when I had to drive a woman in labor to the hospital. I didn't have a driver's license, but she really needed to get there fast. On our way, I was stopped at a police check point and had no option but to use the woman as an excuse. The policeman was very kind and let us go, but I was worried.
"My hopes, plans and dreams for the future are about causing change in the young growing art society by organizing workshops and collaborating with other artisans and organizations. I want to create good projects and relationships which will be of interest to society."
