About the artist
Lord Ohene Okyere-Bour is an Amsterdam-based Ghanaian painter born in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, West Africa. He focuses his practice in portraiture, figurative, and life painting. Ohene lived in Accra and later moved to Amsterdam to pursue his art career. Like many other Ghanaian artists, he is a product of the prestigious Ghanatta College or Art and Design. Combining figurative and portraiture skills and techniques, Ohene has developed his own unique style of bold stunning portraits making use of beads and stones which has made his work easily identifiable.
