THEOPHILUS
TETTEH

About

In his work, Tetteh condenses the internal sentiments and tensions of his characters and focuses them, using the eyes as the outlet for expression. In this way his subjects become independent bodies, bold and daring.

By examining the psychological conditions we as humans are prone to experience, and then exhibiting them through physiological manifestations of that experience, Tetteh’s work is processual in nature, approaching each personality with care and consideration. His experiments are not only in content but in form, colour, and texture, manipulating paint through swift brush strokes and thick impasto. Theophilus Tetteh (b.1991) a self taught artist, lives and works in Accra, Ghana. He studied Graphic Design and at Marimus Art School, whilst continuing to experiment with different media. After finding solace in the pictorial possibilities that Expressionism offered, he found figurative paintings most effective in exploring emotive qualities. His figures which often appear static and singular, are in fact dynamic entities of the local culture. Tetteh has participated in solo
shows and group projects across Ghana, notably the Kente Design Project for Kejetia Market (Kumasi, 2017) and
