Nubuke to host Kweku Opoku’s artwork

Multi-talented man of the arts, Kweku Adu-Gyamfi Opoku, has heaved a sigh of relief after bowing to subtle pressure from friends and family to put some of his paintings and drawings on public display.


The man has been drawing and painting for over 30 years and has persistently pushed back displaying his works despite prodding from numerous angles, till now.

From September 12 2015 to October 3 2015, 52 acrylic paintings on canvas, 20 drawings and 20 digital prints by Opoku  will go on show from 10.00am  at the Nubuke Foundation in Accra.

The exhibition,  titled ‘U Can’t Hide, ’ will be opened by Alhaji Abdul-Rahman Harruna Attah, Ghana’s Ambassador to Namibia.In the artist’s living room at East Legon in Accra where the finished works had been packed ready to be moved to the exhibition venue,  the artist’s broad horizon was evident in the wide array of subject matter and  mode of execution.

From the abstraction of masks to the series of faces and works achieved with just a few strokes of the palette knife or brush, Opoku employs colour as well as light and shade in judicious ways to demonstrate a firm grasp of visual communication.

A Graphic Designer who studied at Cardiff College of Art in Wales, Opoku was a Director of the National Film and Television Institute. He worked as a Creative Director for 15 years in the advertising industry in Ghana. He retired in 2012 and is currently a Design and Brand consultant.

A jazz quartet comprising Frank Kissi (drums), PK Ambrose (bass), Bernard Ayisa (saxophone) and Victor Dey (piano) will play on the first day of the exhibition.
