Painting is my absolute passion!


My name is Daniela Frimpong-Mansoh. I was born on May 15, 1985 in Vienna.

My family is originally from the West African state of Ghana. Thus, I grew up between two cultures, both of which are very close to my heart. I feel like a proud Viennese with African roots. From childhood I was passionate about painting and then never gave up this passion in addition to a variety of professional activities, until I found the courage to apply to the Academy of Fine Arts and make my dream come true.

I have managed the admission to the class for "representational painting" of Prof. Kirsi Mikkola and since then I feel for the first time in my life fully in my element. Since then I paint almost constantly and could, without the painting, no longer exist. I try to express these two cultures, their contrasts, but also their similarities, in my paintings. I paint purely emotionally and feel painting as the language in which I can best express myself. Vienna with its great European-cultural tradition and Africa with its very own cultural tradition, are not opposites for me, but inspirations that cross-fertilize and connect each other. My paintings should be an expression of my deepest inner self, I paint without concept or plan, but out of a deep inner drive that grips me and which, even if I wanted, I can not resist. My greatest desire is to touch other people with my paintings, then and only then, I feel fulfilled and connected to art.
