Godfried Donkor is a Ghanaian born in 1964. Just like Mutu, Donkor’s work is about how the black body has been comodified in Western society. As seen in the images above, he takes images of popular icons and sets them against a historical background. This commodification has existed since the slave trade.
I really like the way he uses collage to make a significant statement. His compositions seem natural and not dismembered as in other types of collage. I think that fact that he uses a limited pallet is effective. The black and white images with gold give an impression of old photographs or events that happened a long time ago.
Perhaps I could try to limit the number of colors I use as I start to play around with digital images.
