Patrick Quarm (b. 1988, Ghana) graduated from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana (2012) with a BFA in Painting and from Texas Tech University with  Masters of Fine Art degree (2018). Currently living and working in Takoradi, Quarm paints portraits of young African individuals directly onto collaged and perforated African wax print fabric. His paintings weave and splice cultural signifiers from different eras and communities into multi-layered works that invite the viewer to explore them from different angles.

 

Quarm’s work has been showcased around the world at institutions including the Trout Museum of Art, Appleton, WI; K.N.U.S.T Museum Kumasi, Ghana; and the Caviel Museum of African American History, Lubbock, TX. He has participated in artist residency programs including Artist in Residence, Red Bull House of Art, Detroit, MI. In September 2020, Quarm debuted his first solo exhibition in New York with albertz benda.
