Artist rakes repeating spiral patterns through figurative paintings

Energy flows through the canvases of artist Foster Sakyiamah. He immerses the figures in surreal spaces dominated by the repetition of wavy patterns in a limited color palette. Like lines in the sand, these fascinating patterns guide the viewer’s eye across the entire canvas.

Based in Ghana, Sakyiamah is currently working as a Noldor Artist-in-Residence in Accra, a program that helps support emerging African artists. It was there that he was able to deepen his creative practice. Through her work, Sakyiamah explores the effect of undulating patterns on minimalist compositions. He uses primary colors to accentuate the forms that populate these dreamlike environments.

Sakyiamah’s art includes a range of different figures, from synchronized dancers in matching leotards to fashionable women wearing lace gloves and headwear. Whether moving or standing, the wavy texture imbues these stylized figures with an innate dynamism that emanates from the canvases.
