Lord Ohene
Gallery 1957

Gallery 1957 has established a reputation as one of the world’s leading galleries dedicated to artists of West Africa and the diaspora. Launched by Marwan Zakhem in Accra in 2016, it has since expanded overseas, opening its first London outpost in 2020. On display at the gallery’s booth at 1-54 New York is this painting by Lord Ohene, a Ghanaian portrait, figurative and still life painter currently based in Amsterdam. Part of the artist’s ‘Afro Memoirs’ series, Possess Gaze (2021) features Ohene’s signature palette of bold, brilliant hues and delicate beadwork, which hints at the character, style, performance and dreams of the sitter. ‘I incorporate elements from life which are inspired by people from my past and my hardships along the way,’ he has said. Catch her eye and you’ll find it hard to look away.
