Almighty God (Kwame Akoto)
b 1950 (Ghana)
Almighty God (Kwame Akoto) is a professional sign-painter and lay-preacher, whose graphic messages and conceptual paintings have been championed by the likes of artist Hervé di Rosa and curator Susan Vogel. God Almighty’s practice is prolific and profound, ironic and pop. He occupies a rarified position in contemporary African art: a distinctive elder statesman, who is as universal as he is quintessentially African. God Almighty’s work has been exhibited in Susan Vogel’s Africa Explores (1991), at the The Museum of Everything (2012) and worldwide.
