Nyornuwofia Agorsor

BIOGRAPHY

Nyornuwofia Agorsor (B. 1983) is a Ghanaian artist (Painter/Musician). She is also a Musician (Vocalist, Instrumentalist, Composer and Performer). Even before she completed her secondary education, she took keen interest in art. Being largely an autodidact, she supplements her skill with studies at the studio of Kofi Agorsor, and she has been at it since completing secondary school. Her work is generally characterized by a childlike innocence that makes it appeal to all, especially children. Being so accessible, Nyornuwofia’s friendly, almost jovial canvases readily disperse their poignant messages without the dizzying pretentions and trappings of the adult world. She believes in the essence of quality family moments and spends a great deal of her time sharing both artistic and academic knowledge with her kids. She says she likes teaching her kids to “keep them on track.” She thinks this part of her life has so much influence on her paintings. Nyornuwofia is the lead Vocalist of the Agorsor Band.
