Ghanese painter Dankyi Mensah seeks to document the ongoing development of the contemporary urban, social, and political landscape of his country through colorful portraiture. “Art is a reflection of my history and my society. It is a mirror image of what I see and feel around me. We are all social beings, and we interact with each other. My social position in society is what fuels my art. But at a more fundamental level, I hope my art can create a better society for my people."
