Deaf Ghanaian-born, self-taught optical artist Peter Owusu-Ansah’s works deal with finding what he is connected to through experimenting in any way he imagines. He paints, photographs, and manipulates photographs into pop art using computers. In 2009, when he zoomed into one of his pop art works, he was fascinated by some colourful pixels. That has become his favourite place to explore colours using Photoshop. Peter has not just depended on the pixel colours he finds, but he has also developed his identity through great colours he experiences in life. He had shown some of his earlier colour works at Tangled Art+Disability Gallery in 2018, at "Black Future" hosted by Black Lives Matter Toronto 2019, and recently at the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair 2019.
Flourishing features the work of seven artists from across Canada whose work addresses the complexities of what it means to flourish, and how flourishing exists in harmony with, and in juxtaposition to, suffering.
