Worldfaze Art Studio will be launched on August 20th with exhibitions by Daniel Tetteh Nartey and Jephthah Aikins Bentsil-Kobiah, current artists in residence, on display until December 20th.
The Art Residency was founded in 2011, and now is the time to oficially launch its Art Studio. This contemporary art studio in Ogbodjo, Accra, offers exhibitions, workshops, and residencies. It aims for sustainability, growth, professional development, connections, and interdisciplinary collaboration, attracting creatives and enthusiasts.
Daniel Tetteh Nartey, a multidisciplinary artist, explores the intersection of art and the human body through his paintings. He explores the role of different body parts in human mobility and societal structure, emphasizing harmonious collaboration for shared objectives. In his exhibition, ‘Blue Heaven’, he showcases his innovative methods in exploring his transformation as a color theorist and a genre-defying surrealist artist.
Jephthah Aikins Bentsil-Kobiah, a multidisciplinary artist, creates vibrant, colorful canvases addressing political and social disparities. His work often narrates the journey of Africans seeking greener pastures in foreign lands for survival. In his exhibition, ‘Things For Change’, his allegorical paintings address infrastructure, environmental degradation, and resource allocation in Ghana, promoting justice and progress through symbols and symbolism.
Worldfaze, an art residency in Accra, Ghana, nurtures emerging contemporary artists through a three-month program, offering workspace, housing, and mentorship, fostering practice development through workshops, seminars, and collaborations.
