Digital paintings on canvas exhibition by Ian Quhachi is a solo show curated by Magdalene Williams where the artist Ian Quhachi uses different styles of digital paintings using various traditional techniques to express a wide range of unconnected ideas. The digital/contemporary artist decides to showcase his works using the new art form (digital art) to speak to the art community.
The art pieces differ from each other from style to theme because he decides to pick random ideas from different topics and cultures with his own renditions. Different practices of the digital art world are expressed in this exhibition.
While there are many good digital artists in Ghana, the myths surrounding this form of art may not help in the presentation process of the artworks; therefore the value of the pieces goes undetermined.
Ian Quhachi has used experimental methods of achieving digital art pieces by mimicking works the mainstream digital artists. From simple illustrations, portraiture, caricature, landscape, still-life to concept art in the digital artworld, he has produced various works. This solo exhibition BROKENTHOUGHTS is just ideas and artworks which are not related in anyway; hence it does not follow a particular trend.
Twenty (20) of his recent works will be showcased (for exhibition and sales) on canvas-on-board and about hundred (100) older works in paper-print or photo-print. Although the exhibition does not intend showing consistency, the artist’s popular Caricature Madness and Afroness collection will be separated asindependent collection
Digital Art is a current art form on the Art Period timeline; eventually more artists will be practising it than those of now since the digital age is here to stay. As one of the pioneers of digital art in the country, Ian is paving a way for other young artists who might want to take advantage of computer age. The question: ‘IS IT EVEN AN ART?’ and other controversial questions about digital arts will be answered during the exhibition.
Venue: Frebe Mall, Takoradi. (Sekondi-Adiembra road, adjacent Effia Nkwanta Hospital)
