Cecilia Lamptey was born into an artistic family – Dad is an accomplished artist in his own right – and she describes herself as a Cosmopolitan Artist born to a Ghanaian father and a Nigerian Mother. Cecilia’s work is in personal collections and galleries across the globe and has been exhibited in China, Europe, Canada and America. Her recent selection to be part of Ghana’s Government’s 2018 artistic team to China makes her a global art ambassador from Africa. Painting in acrylic and oil, her use of color reveals a deep insight into an artist who is daring and pushes the boundaries of our imagination. She is an active participant at the Ouidah Festivals in the Republic of Benin and festival engages in performance art which showcases the divinity of the African Woman. To commemorate the 2019 International Woman’s Day, Cecilia presented a special solo art exhibition “Motherhood in Africa: The African Woman in Spirit and Form” at the Alliance Française, Accra, captured the resilience, strength, and authority of women in Africa and challenged the viewer to question the sources and methods of African women’s strength and power in an otherwise patriarchal culture.
