This limited edition riso print "St. Maurice" is a portrait of the Christian saint of the same name from the third century. The Egyptian St. Maurice ensured the safe passage of Christian pilgrimages to the holy city of Jerusalem. He is still honored with a statue in Germany. In 2022, Aidoo won the Royal Painting Prize with this series of paintings, discussing the presence of Africans during the Middle Ages in Europe. Aidoo is fascinated by the fact that people of African origin had settled in Europe and had also made significant contributions to civilization. He produced two editions of these paintings in riso print available now at our website.

Aidoo creates portraits exploring his heritage, the neglected history of black people and his personal background and life experiences in the Netherlands. In his work, different narratives emerge about the positioning of black people: his works deal with how this position arose and how it is developing in today’s society, towards both men and women. The artist explores this topic through film, paintings, drawings in oil pastels and video installations.
