The Ghanaian artist Prince Gyasi brings a touch of lightness and hope in his photographs. The black bodies on a coloured background which, being well anchored in the contemporary culture of his country, claim a kind of counter-current to the white standards of beauty. As a visual artist, from a photo taken with his I-phone, he creates a whole offbeat and surrealist universe in homage to young people in need (Boxedkids is the association he founded).


The artist's contributed to the Of Beauty, Blackness & Power exhibition_ at Arendt House.
