Clement Laryea, better known as C-Kle, creates inspiring portraits of people from Ghana, his home country in Africa.He has lived there since birth in the early 1980’s.
C-Kle first contacted us in 2012 about being on the site, but did not have the body of work we were looking for. So some years past and in early 2016, C-Kle contacted us again, sending us some awesome pictures of his art, and also a simple question: How do I get on True African Art with you guys?
We liked his simple shortness, but most of all his new paintings struck quite a chord with us. After several phone conversations, we decided that C-Kle would join our ranks as our 72nd artist.
Fast forward to 2022 and you'll see that as an artist, C-Kle has improved and he is thus able to better explore more ways of painting. His work is sold through Accra's tourist hotels and malls, as well as special exhibitions.
C-Kle says that his goals are to educate, motivate, and give hope through painting. In order to do this he wishes to build an Art Center where he will train people from near and far.
Outside of Africa, C-Kle has exhibited at The Parallax Art Fair in London and The Art Revolution in Taiwan.His works have gotten regular exposure and sales here on this website, True African Art .com, which reaches a worldwide audience.
