Esther Ofosu

Esther Ofosu (Ghanaian, 1987) holds a B.Ed. Art from the University of Education, Winneba and earned her Master of Fine Art from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi Ghana. She currently resides and works in Accra.

Ofosu works with a variety of media. Her work evokes emotions drawn from issues happening in and around her environment. In her current work, she puts thousands of rattan shavings together, plaits them into thick heavy strands, dyed, coiled, and convert into fluffy circular mats, objects and installations. By going through these processes, she explores and expands the ideologies of craft labour into various dimensions to include support, body, and any other human elements.

She has recently featured in Telling the Ghanaian Story Through Art (2020) Accra; Pidgin Imaginarium (2019), Chale Wote Street Art Exhibition, Ussher Forts, Accra; African Heritage Art Festival exhibition (2018), Osu, Accra and Cornfields In Accra (2016), Museum of Science and Technology, Accra.
