Foster Sakyiamah, born in 1983, is an emerging contemporary artist based in Accra, Ghana. Although his art comes naturally, he developed his artistic skills gradually from his primary education and through middle school up to the advanced level at the Ghanatta College of Art and Design. Graphic Design and painting were his areas of interest. The rich cultural heritage of his people can be described as a clear manifestation of his art.
His work portrays his innermost feelings and activities within his surroundings. Sakyiamah doesn't believe in monotony or binding himself with one style, but rather believes in being dynamic. A piece by Foster went to Sotheby's auction and was expected to sell between £2,400 - £3,500 but sold for a very impressive £22,680.
