Born in Accra, Ghana in 1994 Botchway’s figurative paintings consider color-consciousness, identity representation, and perceptions of beauty.

Botchway studied Art at the Ghanatta College of Art and Design, before enrolling at the Academy of Visual Arts, Frankfurt. He held his first international solo exhibition Dark Purple is Everything Black at Gallery 1957, Ghana in early 2020 followed by Being as well as Becoming to open the gallery’s London outpost. His works form part of important private collections internationally.

Kwesi Botchway is also the Founder of WorldFaze, Accra, an artist studio and residency space focussing on supporting young artists locally.

Gallery 1957, proudly presents the contributions of Ghana’s compelling voices in contemporary art. Homecoming: The Aesthetic of the Cool, showcases new work of Amoako Boafo, Kwesi Botchway, and Otis Quaicoe, for the first time in a group presentation, and most appropriately, in the birthplace of the artists, Accra Ghana.

This exhibit is open from 26th March – 9th May, 2021 by appointment only.
