African Art Sale

Alexandra Galleries are pleased to announce substantial reductions on original African paintings by Ghanaian born artist Jerry Blankson. Blankson has had a long association with Alexandra Galleries, dating back to 2004 when he arrived from Lagos in Nigeria where he had relocated after leaving Ghanatta College of Art & Design in Accra.

It was during his time in Lagos that Jerry developed his style in mixed media and subsequently had his first exhibition of paintings called Craft Heritage with a group of local artists. Jerry says, "My paintings for me represent my cultural heritage, the colourful sights and sounds of Ga Mashie and stimulate feelings of peace, unity and love within the viewer".

He has featured in two recent exhibitions with Alexandra Galleries, Calling Africa a solo show at Diverse Gallery in 2009 and The Journey: Cultural Expressions in 2010, a group exhibition at the Original Gallery in Hornsey where he exhibited alongside Chinwe Chukwuogo-Roy (MBE), Alvin Kofi and Carol John.

"These reductions are incredible and I expect these paintings to be snapped up by appreciative collectors", says Clem Richards of Alexandra Galleries. Blankson made the call to Richards early this week informing him to reduce the prices of his existing paintings. At these prices Blankson's paintings are a real bargain.
