Derrick Ofosu Boateng (Accra, 1998) is an autodidactic fine art photographer inspired by the wisdom of African proverbs and the richness of the continent, creating vibrant images that veer between visual poetry and conceptual art. Boateng employs his unique chromatic language, stark silhouettes, and ancient storytelling to challenge negative and limited perceptions of Africa. Since the onset of his artistic path, his photography and post-production have been entirely iPhone-based. Boateng’s work brims with energy, color and most of all joy. Derrick coined the term Hueism to advocate for a larger African Art movement. Clients and subjects include Naomi Campbell, Louis Vuitton, and Common.
