Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe

Born in 1988 in Accra, Ghana, and based in Portland, uses his art to navigate themes of identity, cultural dignity, and the complexities of gender and race. His figurative paintings utilize color as a transformative language, each portrait symbolizing a journey towards personal and collective empowerment, embracing the idea of origin and personal narrative as it relates to gender and race dynamics. Solo exhibitions of his work have been shown in Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus; Almine Rech, Paris; Rubell Museum, Miami; Roberts Projects, California, among other locations.
