Edward Lamptey

For Edward Lamptey’s artistry, motifs serve as a repository of information about African belief systems and culture. These motifs in the form of symbols represent concepts personified in human and animal forms, and geometric shapes. He sees them as a profound philosophical statement on African cosmology. He is a Batik Artist, Textile Designer and Painter and has carved a niche in creating Wall Hanging Batik Art.  Lamptey’s artistry borrows largely from the vocabulary of Yoruba and Akan traditional symbols. Using these motifs, his art communicates concepts about African societies and challenges the viewer to question how belief systems hold African societies together.
