My creative work includes conceptualising, digital design, photography, videography and poetry writing.
Without the ability to actualize an idea or concept, art would not exist. My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas that I have about myself and the world I live in. I do not limit myself to one medium, style, or concept. Inspiration and ideas change. Knowledge changes. Each piece I create is simultaneously an extension from the past, where I’ve come from and what I’ve learned, as well as a preview of the future, where I’m going. I believe that insights in art are supported by a cross-disciplinary practice and I find that my work in one discipline will influence my work in another. For example my background as a journalist influenced my recent designs Anansesem ; The term Anansesem refers to the storytelling tradition of the Akan-speaking people of West Africa where I’m from, the word when translated to English, means “Ananse stories” or “Spider tales.” Anansesem encompass the performative art of storytelling associated with Ananse, “the Spider,” in the Twi dialect of Akan. I designed the pieces and explored how emotions and storytelling can be used to create works that show a visual representation of these “unwanted” feelings look like to the everyday person. Poetry and Music has a profound influence on my designs, the art of many recent works has sort of a rhythm to their process, sometimes the unpredictability of what the last element should be is something that most people in the creative field then to wrestle with but as they say “ Creativity is something you are, not something you do” so I’ve learned to sometimes keep it simple and as minimalistic as possible .
