Amoako Boafo

The award-winning international artist Amoako Boafo has been selected to create the inaugural Suborbital Triptych, painted on exterior panels of a Blue Origin New Shepard rocket.

​"It is an honor to be invited to a project of this latitude. To create a painting that will launch into space is unimaginable, and frankly surreal. I wish one day to experience what my characters will see.” -Amoako Boafo

The Project

The Suborbital Triptych mission will launch fall of 2021, and will be the first in a series of commissioned artworks painted on three removable composite panels of Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket. By traveling through space and returning to Earth, this momentous project marks a new phase of space exploration with artistry as the engine of discovery and the recordkeeper of what lies beyond the bounds of our planet.

Uplift For Good

Boafo’s Suborbital Triptych also serves the higher aims of Uplift Aerospace, introducing its
charitable initiative Uplift For Good. It represents Uplift’s commitment to ensure our forays
into the universe result in a net positive impact on Earth. In keeping with Uplift’s mission to
preserve the planet beneath our feet as we reach for the stars, Uplift For Good will bring
attention and support to charitable organizations aligned with the work of the Uplift Art Program.
