Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe

b. 1988, Accra, Ghana. Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe is a Portland-based artist whose figuration is built upon a palette where color becomes its own language of transformation, be it social, political or personal. Each figure becomes a symbol of the reclamation of cultural dignity, embracing the idea of origin and personal narrative as it relates to gender and race dynamics.
