Lot Essay

“I try to bring a wide range of symbols into my work so that everyone can see their own culture reflected in it. I believe that art should not be based on and should not emphasize a single origin or background. It should connect people. So anytime I start working, all I think about is how I can create something that anyone could relate to on a deeper level." - Kojo Marfo
