Combining figurative and portraiture skills and techniques, Lord Ohene has developed his own identifiable style of bold portraits making use of beads and stones. After pursuing an art degree at the Ghanatta College of Art and Design in Accra, Lord Ohene relocated to the Netherlands where he has worked as a movie set designer, glitter art performer, art tutor, and more.
He presents a collection of memories through a community of portraits, each one summoning a person grounded in reality and brought to life through intimate conversation followed by the artist’s imagination. These colourful, characterful portraits all serve as conduits for his multi-layered memories, shaping a communal possibility. They are a cinematography of self-reflection for social representation — a reimagination of kinship.
