Kofi Amoa

I believe in light the way a painter believes in paint …

I am a firm believer in the sublime and haunting beauty of the world. There are so many moments, so many intricacies that we often miss in our everyday lives.

My work is meant to capture some of those moments to provide a different perspective on the world that you see. To shift the real to the surreal in a way that allows even fleeting moments to be drawn out so the full scope of beauty and imagination can be captured.

My mission is not to tell viewers how to think about such experience, or even how I think about it. Rather, it is to give you the opportunity to explore the different aspects of experience, of feeling like you are in a dream while forming your own interpretation of what you are seeing.

I love working with other artists to create unique visions. To explore the depths of our personal and combined creativity to make something refreshing, different, and not easily replicated.
