Kwaku Yaro

Emmanuel Kwaku Yaro (b 1995) is a Ghanaian artist living and working in Accra. Yaro’s practice employs a mixed media approach where he upcycles carrier bags, wax prints and jute sacks alongside his traditional acrylic painting to create portraits of eccentric urban youths.

Yaro’s work is exhibited at Efiɛ Gallery, courtesy of the Nubuke Foundation
