Conrad Egyir

Conrad Egyir’s work borrows from Afrocentric folklore that is rooted in political and religious erudition. He creates narrative paintings that focus on subjects from the Afro-diaspora who interact with identical versions of themselves. Concurrently they take on multiple staged roles as both an antagonist and a protagonist, a friend and foe, or a noble and a commoner as a tool that behooves the viewer to step into the multiple incarnations of each subject, in reverence of a collective human spirit.

Conrad Egyir has exhibited work at Jessica Silverman Gallery, San Francisco; Library Street Collective, Detroit; and Mindy Solomon Gallery, Miami, among others.
