This autumn, October Gallery presents a new solo exhibition from Owusu-Ankomah. The exhibition opens 15th September and continues to the end of October, 2011, Black History Month, UK .

Working in a new palette of colours, the large-scale paintings reflect Owusu-Ankomah's fascination with the adinkra symbols of his Ghanaian culture and depiction of monumental male human forms.

Enter a world of secret signs and hidden meanings, as the artist explores the Dogon people of Mali ’s tales of the Dog Star Sirius and their view of the universe.

If you could circulate this amongst your newsletters / website - what ever is appropriate that would be wonderful.
