Born in Ghana 1994, Kpe Innocent is a self-taught artist who strives to create works that resonate with people everywhere by incorporating themes surrounding love, grace, hope and conditions that affect us as humans. His works aim at capturing the globalized world and represent the commonality the entire human race share, regardless of geographical or sociological limitations.
His paintings are primarily in acrylic paint on canvas, and infuse his interest in minimalist design and aesthetics (with focus on negative spaces and forms) into his traditional painting practice. The paintings are adorned in muted and earthy colours, and the abstract figures are rendered in black and white (leaning towards a shade of grey). These figures are mostly in isolation (to depict our natural state of individuality).
Kpe's work has been collected globally and has most recently featured at Enter Art Fair in Copenhagen with The Hole NYC.
