Patchwork painting of diffrent culturally relevant symbols, perhaps meant to evoke the pictographical writing syle of the early Ghana empire, known as Wagadou. This evocative painting combines unfamiliar symbols with more common ones, such as a sideways heart and ladder, and an evil eye.

Wilfred is an artist from Accra, Ghana using his art to reflect the political and cultural state of his home nation. His paintings blend vivid color with geometric form to create a unique abstract style.
