Andrew Akufo Art Enterprise

Artist Statement I have a broad range of subject matter I enjoy painting. My work encompasses sports illustration and still life to portraiture and landscapes. I easily get bored painting the same concept repetitively so I tend to switch the subject of my paintings often. My work has recently moved in the direction of painting Western landscapes and people. My travels to Arizona and internship experience painting at the National Cowboy Museum has led to me becoming fascinated by the Western culture of the Southwest U.S. I work to capture the beauty, and scale of the plains and rocky deserts in my landscape paintings as well as the mood and story behind my Native American and cowboy portraiture. I use bright saturated colors of acrylics and oil paint to emphasize the vividness and contrast of value present in my compositions.
