Gideon Appah is a Ghanaian Urban artist whose work is reminiscent of artists such as Basquiat and Oscar Murillo. Using a myriad of mediums including text, images, found objects and collage, Appah expresses his fascination and concern regarding contemporary media and popular culture.Through nostalgic blues, bold crimsons, deep greens and charcoal, his dreamlike, surrealist subjects of figures and landscapes are abstracted and fragmented. With glimpses of nature and ghostly reflections, Appah focuses on the presence or feeling his representations evoke to allude to the organic transformation of memories and recollections over time. Using thick, rough applications of acrylic to build up his compositions, Appah responds directly to his own familial stories and a country's history. Appah's work has exhibited internationally, including at Goethe Institute (Accra), Casa Barragan (Mexico City), Ghana Science Museum (Accra), Nubuke Foundation (Accra), KNUST Museum (Kumasi) and Gallery 1957 (Accra).
