Kofi Agorsor completed Ankle College of Art in Accra in 1989. This is after a two year stint studying architecture. He was born in the Volta region of Ghana. Agorsor works predominantly in painting and sculpture but he also has a vibrant musical practice. In his paintings, Agorsor uses pulsating colors that become an interpretation of the essence of lived experiences of modern Ghanaians. His subject matter borders on the generic but rendered often in a buoyant, semi-abstract and witty manner. His canvases may be sparsely populated; often with a solitary figure in a sensuous pose, two lovers enjoying the presence of each other or they may be very populated, inhabited by crowds of market womenor glitterati at events. Some of the canvases may be encumbered with splashes, drips and flows of paint that intertwine to become forests or mazes of enchantment. His sculptures are an embodiment of spontaneous orderliness. Agorsor also leads an Afro-fusion-jazz group that performs his compositions at many events both locally and internationally. An engagement with his musical work, just like his art work,is very rewarding. It often reflects the energeticsubtleties of the collective of musicians he has worked with over time. Recently he has been spending a lot of time in the recording studio with his group. Inspired by both the natural and supernatural worlds, Agorsor’s art and music inspires publics greatly. In accordance with his local and international exhibitions success, Agorsor
