Biography:

Komla Lawoe is largely a self trained painter. Born 1973, he attended the Armed Forces Secondary School.  Form a very young age he enjoyed drawing and after secondary school he realized that art was what he wanted to do.  At College he worked part time as a Gallery Assistant at the National Theatre Art Gallery and he was especially inspired by a number of exhibits there.

Lawoe says, “My inspiration comes from God, because on him I depend and with him I do all things.  I attain the artistic goals I set to the highest degree through Him.  I love to portray the beauty of women. I also like to express my feelings on how women are treated in general.  And sometimes I also depict social and political issues.”
