Kwesi Botchway

Works

 

Botchway is interested in depicting compelling figurative portrait paintings from different generations. His point of focus is the Eyes, Nose and Mouth which is where our emotions are best portrayed, Botchway also believes it helps us better visually experience one another’s feelings; an exchange of information without using words.

His Paintings help create an intriguing dialogue between the subject’s message and the viewer. Botchway work compels the viewer to become physically and emotionally invested in the subject’s story. He aims to capture the spirit, essence and heritage of his subjects and use this as an opportunity to lend the world a glance into the lives and struggles of people whose stories are yet to be fully told.

His paintings are meant to trigger emotions of pride or shame, honor or disgust and sometimes even humor, It’s all about the story of his subjects, which words cannot fully explain.

Kwesi Botchway, is the Founder of worldfaze art studio. He was born in Accra-Ghana and studied Art, at the (Ghanatta College of Art and Design).
