@afrogallonism #sergeattukweiclottey meanwhile in #Accra #Ghana far away from #losangeles . #labadi #wizardofaccra #yellowbrickroad The histories of my community and extended family inspire my art. The narrative in my art explores the family histories in the areas of migration and trade. My community plays a huge part in my work because it serves as my material source and space for production. My work highlights issues about the environment, investigates the work of the Chinese in Africa, and the trade relationship between Europe and Africa. The issues mentioned affect my community, and so how the community relates to them inspires the kind of work I produce.

Over the past few years I’ve become increasingly interested in awareness and monetization of plastic waste through art. #SergeAttukweiClottey sews together plastic from yellow jerrycans to form woven sculptural installations. In doing so he’s transforming plastic waste into works that create jobs, generate wealth for his Ghanaian community, and seeks to protect the environment in his endeavor.

16 Buzzworthy Artists to Watch at Art Basel, Untitled, and NADA in Miami http://www.galeriemagazine.com/16-artists-art-basel-miami/ African artist Serge Attukwei Clottey creates mesmerizing work that explores the personal and political narratives rooted in the histories of trade and migration. The young artist uses everyday materials such as yellow gallon containers, jute sacks, discarded car tires, and wood scraps to form elegant abstract formations. He is currently building his most ambitious work to date, a real-life “yellow brick road” in his hometown of Accra—a patchwork of bright sunflower yellow plastic gallon squares covering the dirt roads and houses. The containers touch on Ghana’s trade history, as they were originally used to transport cooking oil to Africa from the West. A recent series of the intricately woven cut-up gallons that recall El Anatsui will be on view with Gallery 1957. #sergeattukweiclottey
In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary. #thedisplaced #afrogallonism #sergeattukweiclottey #labadi #miami @gallery1957
Afrogallonism | Serge Attukwei Clottey uses plastic ‘gallons’ or jerrycans in his art. These jerrycans can be found all around Ghana and are known as “Kufour” gallons after John Kufour. He is the second President of the Fourth Republic of Ghana. During his term there were major water shortages in Accra, the capital of Ghana. The yellow jerrycans were originally used to carry oil from Europe to Ghana and were then used to store water during the water shortages. Almost every home had them. No longer of any use, the jerrycans are being disposed off carelessly and are becoming a problem. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Serge decided to repurpose jerrycans as artwork - hunting masks, murals and public installations. It opens up conversations and involvement of the local community. Through his art Serge approaches topics such as sanitation, migration, trade & politics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do follow Serge, the critical artist @afrogallonism ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #afrogallonism #sergeattukweiclottey #jerrycan #plasticwaste #ghana #accra #artforchange #repurposing #golokal #installation #artisttofollow #avinashfinearts

This stunning portrait actualises a collaboration between what we believe are two of Ghana’s most exciting artists: photographer @princejyesi and artist @afrogallonism. It depicts Serge decorated in his signature conceptual tool, the woven gallon-container pieces. He appears to be in the process of placing a mask made of the same material over his face. @princejyesi has captured a moment where the artist is in the process of imbuing himself with the ideological symbolism of his work. In other words, he is making himself the artwork. The photo therefore transcends a mere recording of time and location and subject. It is heightened by the process it records. It is invested with symbolism. - #afrogallonism #sergeattukweiclottey #princegyasi #princejyesi #photography #africanartists #visualists #afrosurrealism #ghana #collaborations
