Kwasi Darko is a Ghanaian fine arts photographer, digital artist and curator living and working in Accra, Ghana. His work uses visual art and performance art to create visibility and weave positive narratives for people usually ignored and underrepresented in his society. Beyond exploring queer identities and spaces on his home continent, his work also explores Blackness and its many intersections. A BA in theatre arts informs the poetic and traditional nature of his work, while recent interest in virtual and augmented reality programming has geared his art into a more digital and technology-oriented direction, exploring such concepts as transhumanism and the human relationship with the digital.
