Bloc Billboard: Larry Amponsah
15 April – 15 May
Free & open to all
We are delighted to present the work of London based artist Larry Amponsah as part of our prestigious Bloc Billboard programme. Larry will be the first artist to present work as part of the 2019 programme and will be presenting his work on our new billboard located alongside the gallery on Eyre Lane.
Larry Amponsah (b. 1989, Accra – Ghana) is a contemporary artist interested in space and pushing the idea of collage making as means or platform through which he achieves his artistic ends. Larry received his Master of Art in Painting from the Royal College of Art in London, after partially studying a Master of Fine Art in Painting at Jiangsu University in China, as well as gaining his BFA in Painting at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi.
His practice investigates the way images are made and the politics of imagery. Working through painterly possibilities that can be contained in a figure and the spaces in which bodies exist, he aims to solve the unresolved questions of representation in art.
