Prince Gyasi is a Ghanian visual storyteller who aims to represent his community and generation through his work. He shot his first photographs through an iPhone in order to break artistic conventions and question the elitism found in art. His practice, featuring block colour and vibrant contrast, aims at making his audience experience his own reality with synesthesia, a condition that makes him associate each word, sound, or emotion to a colour.
Through his unique colourful universe, he depicts the elegance and energy of his generation, liberated from old beliefs on sexuality, race, and traditional social norms. The artist considers his work as ‘a therapy through colours’ and believes colour has a positive impact on people’s mental health and happiness. His work also highlights the beauty of Black bodies, offering a counter-narrative to the dominant western-centred notions of beauty.
