Uplift Aerospace Working With Amoako Boafa For Upcoming Blue Origin New Shepard Mission



Ghanaian international painter Amoako Boafo is set to make history as his artwork jettisoned into space. The Ghanaian painter will work with Utah-based company, Uplift Aerospace, on a new piece entitled, Suborbital Triptych.

The Suborbital Triptych series is emblematic of Uplift’s mission to further scientific discoveries and creative experimentation by granting artists access to the most advanced space technologies.

Amoako Boafo will join the Uplift team in Texas this fall to paint his original artwork on three removable carbon-fiber panels, comprising the Suborbital Triptych, designed to attach at the apex of a Blue Origin New Shepard rocket.

Amoako Boafa’s telling The Art Newspaper, he is excited about the responsibility he holds with this aeronautic project, “I am drawn to the idea of my works going into a new orbit, literally,” Boafo says. “This will further push my vision for my practice. I am honored to be one of the first Black men to have my work sent to space. I’m very excited to be a part of this from a historical standpoint.”
