KOJO MARFO IN ARTNET’S TOP 5 UP-AND-COMING ARTISTS

Artnet, July 7, 2020
Right now, JD Malat is hosting "Isolation Mastered," a show of 25 lesser-known artists of all ages and backgrounds, as an opportunity to showcase and sell their artwork in one of London's leading galleries. Ghanaian-born British artist Kojo Marfo's works are a stand-out. His collage-like paintings meld imagery taken from traditional African artworks and symbols in brilliant, pattern-like passages of color. There are hints of Basquiat's graffiti-like work, Picasso's Cubist forms, and the mysticism of Wilfredo Lam.
