As Mensah puts it, “the artist is sometimes seen as crazy, but to me, the very thing we all see and take for granted translates into the artistic representation on the canvas, as the spirit of creativity takes over my being.”

He has an intense sense of color and this vibrancy adds a great deal to the paintings he produces. “I create to portray how I see nature and to exhibit the artistic qualities in me.” He creates works that are easily identifiable, not merely through his own style but his subjects as well. The characters he portrays, the stories he tells, are all part of one very elaborate narrative.

Couples II is a donation from by B. Mensah.
