Kuukua in Scrubs

Just a few words...

Born in the small fishing beach-town of Sekondi-Takoradi on the western coast of Ghana, traits of my upbringing and culture always appear in my works. As the culture of Ghana is vibrant, vivid and inviting, I also strive to maintain that similar energy in my work.   

My work falls into two categories: the first is the research driven scientific illustration, and the second is my creative visual exploration. Both deal with storytelling.

As a Scientific Illustrator, my aim is to create didactic, technically sound, and visually accurate imagery that make scientific and medical information widely accessible. The goal of being a great story-teller is more prevalent in this line of work. In gathering data and research, I drive towards presenting information in a manner that offers better understanding to my chosen audience.  

 As a fine artist, I strive to explore obscure subject relationships in hopes of describing the complexities of life. I delve into topics ranging from cultural ideals, beauty, nature, emotions and the wider human experience. I use my works to discuss my culture and the lens it has provided me to view and understand life.
