Otis Quaicoe's figuration is built upon a palette where colour becomes its own language of transformation, be it social, political or personal. These are images of empowerment and redemption, sophistication and humility, curiosity and quietude. Each figure becomes a symbol of the reclamation of cultural dignity, embracing the idea of origin and personal narrative as it relates to gender and race dynamics. Otis Quaicoe was born in Accra, Ghana and currently resides in Portland, Oregon.
