Episode 11: Art, Architecture and Affirmations with Asare Adjei - Part 1

Welcome back to the Glocal Citizens Podcast. We'll be spending the next two episodes with interdisciplinary artist, photographer, and architect--Asare Adjei. Asare is a Ghanaian-British living and working between London (UK) and Accra (Ghana). Asare’s work captures an essence of humanity and the duality of existence by the juxtaposing of various visual elements, materials and symbology to create a unique new style. He creates vibrant artworks by the blending, shaping and merging of myriad African visual textures with cosmology and architectural influences. He utilizes his art to explore his Ghanaian heritage and what it means for him to be an African; his work is a love letter to Africa and an appreciation for its movement towards the future. Asare studied Architecture at East London University and worked as an Architect for 12 years prior to pursuing his passion for Fine Art and Photography. He has worked most notably with the prestigious architect Sir David Adjaye. Asare has had his photography works published in The Guardian Newspaper, and has exhibited artworks in group exhibitions at Rebecca Hossack Gallery (Mayfair/UK), Level 39 (Canary Wharf/UK), The Black and White building (Shoreditch/UK) and MeWe360 (Soho/UK). He has also exhibited in a number of pop-up galleries in Accra (Ghana/Africa) and has been shortlisted for a variety of art awards including Art Gemini Prize, Creativepool Annual/etc.

In Part 2, we talk global citizenship, migration and Asare's sonic inspirations.
