Maxwell Boadi (b. 1981) was born in Ghana. He lives and works in the city Accra, Ghana. He studied fine arts at the Ghanatta College of Art and Design.
As a young boy, Boadi showed a great interest in drawing, and when he was 18 years old, he started his artistic career. Boadi experienced a religious face in which "God blessed him with a great and dynamic style". His favorite painting technique is oil painting. Boadi paints with palette knives as his master tool for interpreting the world around him and creating tension in the image surface. For Boadi, art is everything and everything is art as long as it exists.
Boadi's style reflects his inspiration from people and the environment. He is fearless, adventurous and has an artistic maturity that sets him apart from his contemporaries. Maxwell Boadi's artwork covers a wide range of topics, such as portraits inspired by friends and neighbors, exploration of his Christian faith, and descriptions of the urban development of the Accra landscape.
He uses a lot of colors and dynamic coats to create an abstract composition. He is a bold expressionist and has an exceptional approach to the contemporary in his works. He is inspired by seeing people in the market, in stadiums and places where large groups of people are gathered. He also paints the busy nature in his pictures.
"There's something that always brings us together, and that's when we meet in the square."
Maxwell Boadi has had many group and solo exhibitions in several countries.
