Bio

Lloyd Kofi Foster is a Ghanaian-American interdisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn who works primarily with photography as well as sculpture, installation, video and mixed media. Foster uses these media to capture daily life and the interactions of the people and places he encounters. The artist also uses personal connections, memories, and his perception to reflect his dual identity as a Ghanaian-American and he continues to be inspired by his personal experiences, memories and ancestral curiosity.

Foster began to photograph a rapidly changing Washington, D.C. in 2014, equipped with a 35mm film camera. In February 2015, he traveled to Ghana for the first time. Prior to traveling, Foster's appreciation of Ghana was from a Ghanaian-American perspective and the trip allowed him to experience and explore the country he considers his homeland. One of his first photography series was "From Ghana with Love" which documents and illustrates the artist's family history in Ghana and every-day experiences and interactions with family and new friends, from the busy streets of Accra, the capital city, to the calmer paths of Kukurantumi, his father's hometown.

Foster's work has been exhibited at BWI Airport International Art Gallery in Baltimore, USA; LagosPhoto Festival in Lagos, Nigeria; the National Geographic Museum in Washington, D.C., USA; the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities in Washington, D.C., USA; the Textile Museum in Washington, D.C., USA; Prince Georges African American Museum in Brentwood, USA; and IA&A at Hillyer in Washington, D.C., USA. Foster received an MFA in Studio Art from New York University and he founded Yeboah Studios, a platform to bridge African countries and the diaspora through art, fashion, film and other creative means and in collaboration with other creatives.
