Name: Edmund Boateng
Statement: Art has been a part of who I am; as a child, I discovered my love for creativity and often found myself passionately sketching images I found fascinating and writing down on paper concepts to explore. Growing up, in the city of Kumasi, Ghana, where I’m from, art was always all around me. With my father being a very talented shoe maker, and two uncles, one being an architect and the other a painter – I was surrounded by their diverse creativity everyday, which inspired me to follow the family talent. As I grew in my talent, I began to draw celebrities from Ghana and showing it to families and friends.
