    Art Brokerage: Ato Delaquis Ghanaian Artist: b. 1945. Ato Delaquis is one of Ghana's foremost artists. Well known for his iconic paintings of horsemen, as well landscapes and more abstract work, he is also a prolific draughtsman, and has worked in a wide variety of media including printmaking. His fascination with the horsemen of the Sahel began when he first saw them in the Cape Coast as a ten-year-old boy. His childhood interest was further stimulated by an avid interest in "Cowboys and Indians" comics. Delaquis has been both a prolific painter and an influential educator within Ghana. He is inspired by by the rich and tragic history of his continent, the clash between the traditional and the modern but his starting point is always aesthetic. His focus has always been local and whilst he has gained international recognition he has never courted it - insisting that an artist must first establish his name with his or her local audience.
