Signed Abstract Painting by a Ghanaian Artist, "Loneliness"$474.99
Inspired by themes of loneliness, Ghanaian artist K. Baka paints a composition that makes a striking addition to any space. Against colorful shapes, a single figure stands alone. Says the artist, "Loneliness is not when you don't have anyone with you, it's when you have everyone but not the one whom you want to be with you."
Original African Still Life Painting in Jewel Colors, "Necks of Unity"$609.99
Empty calabash jars emerge from clouds of vivid color. Seeming to hover in midair, the generous gourd bowls seem part of a dream world. Prince Asher paints an abstract still life of magical beauty. "I see peace and understanding within the necks of struggling gourds," he explains.
Ghanaian Urban Themed Abstract Unstretched Acrylic Painting, "Makola at Noon III"$187.99
A man carries out the everyday task of fixing a tire on his car, while in the background, abstract shapes in primary colors suggest a crowded urban street. Artist Kofi B. Awuyah's expressionist work is inspired by the Makola Market, one of the biggest market places in Accra, Ghana, where even the perpetual throngs of shoppers and sellers must make way for an automotive mishap. In this acrylic on canvas, the West African painter contrasts the detailed objects in the foreground with the figurative images in the rest of the painting.
