Amon Kotei

Ghana

(Born in 1915, La, Ghana. Lived and worked in Accra, Ghana.)

Amon Kotei was a sculptor, painter and musician. He famously was commissioned by Ghana’s first president Dr. Kwame Nkrumah to design the National Coat of Arms. The subjects of much of his work were market women from Accra’s Makola market. He drew his inspiration from everyday life in Accra. His use of bold and subtle colors and lines point to a Fauvist influence. Kotei created work in direct response to his perception of the world.


His work has been exhibited widely and is part of collections internationally.
