The technique is called Pointillism a process by which small dabs and strokes of pure colour spontaneously applied, made a painting more dynamic and more vibrant.

, Ghana

Betty Acquah, one of Accra’s foremost female painters, investigates her beliefs regarding the true nature of Ghanaian women. The trials, ambitions, celebrations and successes of ordinary but inspirational woman form the central theme of her rich and florid canvasses. After attending Wesley Girl’s High and Holy Child schools in Cape Coast; Acquah proceeded to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi where she obtained a first class degree. Acquah later pursued the M.F.A. (painting) program at Kwame Nkrumah after a interim course at the Tokyo School of Art in Tokyo, Japan. She has worked at the Centre for National Culture in Accra, Ghana and is currently working at the Berj Art Gallery, Accra. Acquah has participated in exhibitions in Ghana as well as abroad. Betty Acquah maintains that women are the unsung heroines of the Ghanaian Republic. The images she depicts tell of ordinary women working courageously towards a greater Ghana.
