Larry Amponsah

Larry Amponsah draws upon his knowledge of cultures and locales as diverse as Ghana, China and the United Kingdom (not to mention utilizing images sourced from the universal World Wide Web) to create large-scale juxtapositions of found fragments of popular culture. These new and blazingly fresh imaginaries speak of the world we live in today: fragmented, funny, tragic and somehow unreal yet lived. Amponsah is like the trickster figure who holds up a mirror to us and we see ourselves reflected in his culture-clash of diversity and dissonance. Since 2016 he has been an Abraaj Innovation Scholar at the Royal Academy of Arts, London.
