Kofi Agyapong: soccer player by night, artist by day
The men’s soccer team has some interesting characters. Sophomore forward Kofi Agyapong transferred from powerhouse squad Wake Forest a year ago to be closer to his family, and, as advertised, has dazzled on the field with his ball skills. But it’s his effusive, caring personality that makes him especially valuable as a team member. Not only that, but Agyapong is an accomplished artist and has been invited to several art exhibitions. Read the full story here and check out some of his art after the jump.
Along his journey, Agyapong became interested in art and started painting. Raised in Ghana by a single mother, he likes to paint women and their children.
“I live in my paintings,” Agyapong said. “I paint a little home street with all these people going about their activities, carrying things on their head [...] that’s how stuff is there.”
Check out a few more of Agyapong’s paintings below.
