Lynette Yiadom-Boakye

Born in London (United Kingdom) in 1977. Lives and works in London (United Kingdom).

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye is a painter, poet and writer. Her large-scale figurative paintings represent subjects that she constructs from a combination of memory, imagination, drawing and scrapbooks, and focus on fictional figures that exist outside of specific times and places. This lack of a fixed narrative leaves her work open to the projected imagination of the viewer. Although her paintings are rooted in traditional formal considerations, the subjects and the ways in which the paint is handled is decidedly contemporary. Her paintings are typically completed in a day to best capture a single moment or stream of consciousness.
