The art of Serge Attukwei Clottey (b. 1986, Ghana) primarily employs found materials from the artist’s hometown in Accra, Ghana in order to create a dialogue with the city’s cultural history and identity. Utilising everyday objects such as discarded Kufuor gallons, car tyres and recycled boat wood as his canvas, Clottey inscribes the materials with patterns and text that transform them into symbols of Ghana’s vernacular economic system of trade and reuse.
