I am Emmanuel Taku a painter, born and raised in Accra Ghana.
I paint with newspaper and acrylic paint on fiberglass, fiber net, mesh, plywood and canvas. I don’t see my paintings as mere decorative pieces but the experiences and energies around me given flesh. All my painting carry a bit of me, my paintings are living things to me.
My portrait paintings are enticing in their clarity, accentuating the figures in each work, who are regularly isolated on single colour backgrounds on canvas and no backgrounds on fibreglass, fibre net and mesh(the colour of the wall of the client becomes the background).
I love to bring my imaginations to life, and the best way I do that is through my paintings, painting makes me feel like a god over my pieces.
I don’t paint any image I see, I only paint images or people who connect with my kind of energy.
