This idea and style of painting was inspired by the human face and skin textures. I am interested in depicting figurative portrait of individuals across generations with focus on the Eyes, which best display and tells the true nature of human and it emotions. I believe the eye give us the access to feel the consciousness of our self and others and also connect us to perceptions of truth and honesty. My art aims at creating an intriguing dialogue between the audience and my paintings as they lose themselves to my self creative impressionism play, I aim to capture the spirit, essence and heritage of my subjects. Through my works I lend the world a lens into the lives and struggles of people whose stories are yet to be fully told with a hint of positivity.

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).
