Sarpong Akosah

Sarpong Akosah from Accra in Ghana, Africa. I was raised and had my education in Accra and Kumasi. My parents wanted me to be a banker but I pursued what I love to do, Art. 

When I looked around, all I could see were paintings, carvings, etc. I wanted to do something different.  

While trying to find that special something, I met a man named Samuel Asiedu, he used thread to write names on plywood. That really inspired me and I wanted to try this form of artwork too. After years of working in this medium the artwork I create is beautiful and rich. In my work, I showcase nature’s beautiful creations and the people around me. I want to be remembered anytime Thread Art is mentioned.
