Ferguson Amo

Ferguson Amo works across various mediums, including hyper realistic drawings, installations, and mixed media. Originally from Koforidua, Ghana, the artist explores contemporary African identity in the diaspora and examines the intricate details of history and experiences of cultural diffusion, and its assimilation, through representation. Through each work, Amo asks “how as an audience, can we move the image of black bodies and ‘blackness’ toward emancipation?”

Ferguson Amo has exhibited work at VisArts, Rockville; Kente Royal Gallery and The Immigrant Artist Biennial, both New York City, among others.
