Virtual REsidency Recipient
Jasmin-Nicole Amoako (she/her) is a Ghanaian Canadian emerging visual artist based in Toronto. She is a graduate of the Drawing and Painting program from the Ontario College of Art and Design University (2021). Her artwork depicts contemporary visuals of Black womanhood and West African culture. Through figurative painting, abstract art, and sacred African braiding practices she applies African and Western methodologies to articulate her cultural identity. Amoako’s artwork combines themes that examine healing, nature, and meditation to create large-scale portraits and abstract dreamscapes. During this residency, she will develop an artist wellness series focusing on collaboration, identity, memory, and selfhood.
