Mixed Media Artist based in Poughkeepsie, NY
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Emmanuel 'Manny' Ofori is a professional mixed media artist whose innovative and culturally uplifting creations are challenging the influence of Westernization in the world of art and beauty. Born and raised in Ghana until the age of thirteen, when his family relocated to New York, Emmanuel's work is a cathartic reflection of his own experiences reconciling with the cultural and socio-normative differences between these two worlds. By combining non-traditional materials that are often discarded with more traditional mediums, each piece is a protest to the exclusive nature of Westernization in the sphere of fine art and beauty.
