Patrick Tagoe-Turkson


Patrick Tagoe-Turkson is a multi-disciplinary artist, teacher and activist who grew up in the Effutu State of Winneba in Ghana. He became fascinated with his historical traditional flag art concepts at an early age. This led to his earlier research and art projects in contemporary Asafo flag art which eventually progressed into working with found upcycled flip-flops collected from beaches in his neighbourhood.  A lover of nature, Patrick has been actively involved in creating with natural materials since the year 1999, where he has worked with communities, children, nature art groups/organisations and artists locally and internationally to create art from and with nature. Some of his remarkable recent projects include: Generations Woven, 2023 in Ghana, Is Everything OK, 2022, in United Kingdom, I Have Seen Things, 2021 in Mexico, Akikakika, 2021 in Ghana, From The Jail Walls: In the Mind of a Prisoner, 2019 in India  and Repurposed, 2019 in USA.
