Kwame Bakoji-Hume

"I am a Ghanaian from Northern Ghana, although I grew up in Tema in the South of Ghana.  Like many people today my 'Tribe' or ethnic group is only a small part of defining who I am.

 

I have been blessed to live in both Africas. As a child I lived in a farming and fishing community and we did live in mud huts without electricity or running water.  But we were not hungry or bored! As an adult my talents were nurtured and I was sponsored to study fine art in the capital city of Accra.  Here we have tower blocks, motorways, art galleries,theatres, international airports and more.

 

I have been living in the UK since 2000, although I regularly return to Ghana.  I have a passion for sharing the diversity of Africa and, especially, my homeland of Ghana.  As demand for my workshops has grown, I have developed a team of practitioners who feel exactly the same way."
