Gallery of Colour with Mobile Photographer Derrick Ofosu Boateng @derrick_o_boateng

“Each carefully constructed, colour saturated image is its own Boateng masterpiece, but together they become something even greater: iconic.” TheAppWhisperer

Derrick Ofosu Boateng is a contemporary Art photographer who was born in Ghana and resides in Accra. Boateng attended Kumasi high school and is currently a student at the university of Ghana business school. He is a fan of football and watching movies.

“I came into photography around November 2017 with the perception I had that  the world didn’t see the happy times and didn’t know the extraordinary lifestyles and behaviours we Africans had. When growing up I noticed through movies, stories and musics that, the mindset people had about Africa is ‘ Africa not being a good place to live and Africa is full of atrocities and chaos’ . The environment is my source of inspiration for the fact that I portray exactly what is happening in our communities and God inspires me stands for the fact that as per my religion (Christianity), He is the creator of all things and the beauty in Nature feels my desire to capture them.

Colour blocks in my Art pictures allow me more space for creativity as colors have a substantial amount of influence on our feelings and portrays beauty beyond sense. I capture people from all stages of life without issue but mostly dwell on children because in my opinion children are more open, expressive, creative and capture the essence what I want to portray.”
