Kwesi Botchway, Accra, Ghana Artworks © 2015, 2016, Kwesi Botchway Artist's Statement, Commissions & Website
My Name is Kwesi Botchway, and portrait painting is my passion. I believe that I have potential as an artist and a particular talent for the human form. My ideal and style of painting is inspired by the human family. My mission is to celebrate the beauty of the world’s many faces and cultures.
I see the face as a gateway of the soul. And within the face my point of focus is the eye. I see my paintings as projecting positive emotions: a hint of humour, the provoking of a smile. I invite the viewer to get close then closer to my paintings, and to see in them the individual, and the culture he or she represents.
