Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

One of the most renowned painters in Ghana today, Larry Otoo likes to refer to himself as a "contemporary traditionalist." Born in Accra, Ghana in 1956, his subject matter is inspired by the everyday activities of ordinary Ghanaians. His vibrant, abstract paintings in oil and acrylic capture the rhythm and beat of daily life. He paints, he says, "to record and preserve our traditions visually." Otoo holds a Master's Degree in African Art and Comparative Literature from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. He has been making art since he was a child, when he used to be scolded for drawing in charcoal on the walls. Otoo has held exhibitions Africa, Europe, and the USA. His paintings decorate Ghana's presidential suite and Ghana's chancery in Washington, D.C. His recent activities include a residency in Segovia, Spain in 2011 with a joint presentation at the Nubuke Foundation in Accra, Ghana.
