A GHANAIAN sculptor is set to make his debut in the annual Mayfair art celebrations.

London-based  Kojo Marfo, presented by JD Malat Gallery, is just one of the artists who will be showcased in June.

He developed his interest in art and visual culture through traditional Akan artefacts, sculptures and carvings that he was exposed to as a child in Africa.

Many exhibits of public art are soon to appear in Mayfair as part in the annual summertime event.

Galleries will open late and there will be a range of talks and routes and performances.

Ewan Venters, chief executive officer at Hauser & Wirth said: “Mayfair Art Weekend is a celebration of the diversity and resilience of the exceptional galleries in the district.”

One of the highlights is the Mayfair Sculpture Trail that sees works positioned outside galleries across
New Bond Street, Cork Street, Burlington Arcade, Grosvenor Square and Berkeley Square.

There is an audio guide so the public can follow the trail and know what’s going on.

A full programme will be announced on the Mayfair Art Weekend in June.
