Edward is from the prestigious community of East Legon, a bustling metropolis in the heart of Accra, Ghana. A licentiate and degree holder in Fine Arts, Edward focuses on Neo-Africanism as an art form. Illustrating through motifs & pictorial paintings, as well as contemporary handcrafted textiles – he encapsulates African traditions, customs, and values through this media of choice, which also acts as a mode of inspiration.
Through his participation in art exhibitions, symposiums, conferences, and workshops; along with the professional connections he has made with other artists and those that support the arts –has led to a new form of inspiration. A true art activist, Edward also works with youth programs within his country to promote the arts. The spirit of these connections to this day is portrayed in each piece that’s created.
In his own words: “I am visual artist with a musical background. When I’m painting, crafting textiles, working with ceramics or sculpting I look create based on the heart beat I feel through the works. I allow the rhythm to guide me throughout the creative process. For inspiration, my environment speaks to me – socially, politically, economically, culturally, and through sports I ingest society and disseminate an artistic output that reflects reality.”
