About The Artwork

I WILL HOLD TO MY DREAMS. 36 x 28 inches, acrylics on canvas and colorful in the typical Theophilus Tetteh style. Also present are the textured hair and the blue eye mask. The background of this painting is dark, bringing out the light of a brightly lit candle held in the hands of a lady, the main subject of the painting. Abundantly lustrous hair on a smiley face lit by candle light, she is draped in a colorful shawl of blue, yellow and white. Underneath the shawl is a wine dress. Three books lie on top of a drawer by her side, closed and packed on top of each other. The dreams of most modern youth include higher educational attainment. And even if it has to be done by burning the midnight oil, some ambitious and determined youth would.

In his work, Tetteh condenses the internal sentiments and tensions of his characters and focuses them, using the eyes as the outlet for expression. In this way his subjects become independent bodies, bold and daring. By examining the psychological conditions we as humans are prone to experience, and then exhibiting them through physiological manifestations of that experience, Tetteh’s work is processual in nature, approaching each personality with care and consideration. His experiments are not only in content but in form, colour, and texture, manipulating paint through swift brush strokes and thick impasto. Theophilus Tetteh (b.1991) lives and works in Accra, Ghana. He studied Graphic Design and Painting at Marimus Art School, whilst continuing to experiment with different media. After finding solace in the pictorial possibilities that Expressionism offered, he found figurative paintings most effective in exploring emotive qualities. His figures which often appear static and singular, are in fact dynamic entities of the local culture. Tetteh has participated in solo shows and group projects across Ghana, notably the Kente Design Project for Kejetia Market (Kumasi, 2017) and National Theatre of Ghana (Accra, 2018). He was recently awarded Artist of the Year (2021) by the BE OPEN Foundation and is also a member of the Ghana Association of Visual Artists (GAVA).
