Agyarko Kotoko transforms his vision of tradition into a modernist sense of artistry with a spiritual undertone. Amid a flurry of color, a woman raises her voice to praise the Lord with her song. Adinkra symbols are expressively depicted above and below her as Kotoko paints with acrylics. Originally created by the Akan people, Adinkra are visual symbols that represent spiritual concepts or aphorisms, and the Ghanaian artist includes, from left to right: Dwennimmen, representing humility and strength; Mate masie, symbolizing wisdom, knowledge and prudence; Gye nyame, in the middle, speaks to God's supremacy; Bi nka bi stands for peace and harmony, and at the end is Kwatakye atiko. It symbolizes bravery and valor.
