Amah is a dedicated fine art and documentary photographer working from the heart of the Niger Delta, Yenagoa. His hard-edge paintings are an influence of his graphic design background characterized by geometric sharps with colours that translate mood. His fine art printmaking are a discourse of the underscored truth of our society that in turn affects the society. He pays remarkable attention to shapes and the emotion colours brings, with each numbered print being unique through variation of the values and tones of the colours. There is an interplay between his hard-edge paintings and his fine art prints, as the prints become studies for his paintings and the paintings translated to prints.
