Joshua Oheneba Takyi

Oheneba-Takyi Joshua (born in 1997 in Kumasi, Ghana) focuses his practice on the interaction between chairs and humans, using that as a starting point in his ongoing exploration and investigations of the human experience.

In his work, he intimately explores and documents themes of placement and displacement, often employing the chair as a metaphor for notions of stability and belonging. His versatile practice has increasingly drawn attention and has led to his work being exhibited in various galleries in Ghana, like Gallery 1957, and in European Galleries.

His works have also been collected worldwide in private collections in Europe, including the Sir David Adjaye Private Collection. Yet, given his academic background in the field of science in Construction Technology and Management, he dedicated himself to pursuing art as a full-time career. Oheneba currently spends his time at Creccents, his studio located in Accra, researching and deepening his art practice.
