Dzade is a young and vibrant Ghanaian artist born in Adidome, Ghana within the Volta Region. The central Tongu district capital is located at the mouth where the Volta River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Given its proximity to surrounding waterways, the area attracts tourists and locals to its scenic views, waterfalls, and animal sanctuaries. Dzade actively exhibits throughout Africa and today calls Accra home.
The multi-faceted artist believes in channelling his skills into memories that will endure for lifetimes. Self-taught and formally trained while studying Painting at the Takoradi Polytechnic University, Dzade leverages his training to help further his work and impact. Noticeably, his works are a clear reflection of local society seen through the lens of portraits, still-life imagery and landscapes highlighted by themes that are in pursuit of social equality.
In his own words: “I am motivated to paint out the pain that bedevils our society. I want to use my art to the fullest and benefit humanity.”
