I’ m artist Florentyna Theodora Ackah: origins Polish, Ghanaian.
From my paintings, you will discover I do not like to paint within one medium as I love experimenting with different textures such as sand, gloss and acrylic paint. I come from a multicultural background, born and raised in London town which has a massive influence on the vibrant works I create.
I like to base my work on the ethical issues that black women still face today, exploring the irony of how they are perceived in the media, in a world increasingly obsessed with fetishizing them but not willing to give them the appropriate value. Through painting pixeled portraits of WOC I want to celebrate the beauty and strength of these women which the world is blind to.
