The Scene of the Market

list price: $500 | Discount: 57% | Views: 1897

The Scene of the Market provides a rendering of an age-old scene; a dozen villagers greet each other as vendors sell their goods in an active market. Tall and thin figures are depicted carry their wares and purchases on their heads in cool greens, whites and blues, against a hot red background representative of the heat of the day.

Artist: Herri Akotua

Herri is a Ghanaian artist who has been creating paintings for sale for the last 8 years. Although Herri never attended any formal school to specialize in color, art history and the like, Herri took to painting and etchings from a young age. This active interest in art caused him to reach out to a master painting close to Herri's family, Nash, who taught Herri to paint what he sees and to strive to go with his gut when creating something new. Herri has been living in Accra for the last 14 years and is a proud father of a two year old girl.
