This display is part of our Artist Showcase series, spotlighting work by local artists and designers with migrant heritage in our window display:
I am a London-based artist and designer, born in Ghana, with a deep interest in the constructed elements which make us humans. Through the use of different mediums in my work, I use art to explore these layers of identity.
Starting my journey as a street photographer, I would study people’s behaviours and how we navigate and make sense of the world around us. From there, I began to take self portraits – creating characters influenced by my parents’ old photographs and my present surroundings.
I still continue to draw from my upbringing in inner-city London and I combine it with my ancestral history to create new ways of seeing. By using my own body to communicate ideas and stories, I am able to create work that expresses my inner imagination and subconscious.
I want the visuals I produce to extend thoughts beyond a physical being. I like my work to inform but most of all I want people to feel a conversation happening between the heart and mind.
