Ronchini Gallery aims to discover and rediscover exceptional artists through presenting curated exhibitions from the gallery’s stable of international artists. Founded by Lorenzo Ronchini in 1992, the gallery evolved from years of private collecting.

    Annan Affotey: Windows To The Soul

    06 May - 18 June 2021
    Ronchini is proud to present the first European solo exhibition by Ghanaian born, British based artist, Annan Affotey. Featuring the artist’s striking ‘red-eye’ paintings, this exhibition will introduce the European audience to the large scale, bright portraiture that has commanded the artist’s recent practice. Initially beginning as a semi-abstract painter, after the birth of his son, Affotey yearned for a way to provide a voice for the marginalised, and he began to paint portraits of friends and relatives in an effort to re-frame and re-examine the context of people of colour in society. The arresting red-eyes are suggestive of a full life, with emotions and stories that transcend the colour of their skin.
