Johney Ohene

Born in Cape Coast, Ghana, date unknown

Johney Ohene (a member of the Rainbow Art Group) had work included in Double Vision: An exhibiton of contemporary Afro-Caribbean art, held at Cartwright HallBradford, 8 November 1986 - 4 January 1987. Within the Double Vision poster/brochure, the text on Ohene included “Though recognisably innovative there are acceptable traces of surrealistic visual idioms in his work attesting to the influence of a Western environment in which he had his art education. There is also an ill-disguised love of handling paint in thin layers using the hard edge to aesthetic advantage, a device which expresses visual tension and has a compelling effect on the viewer.”
