Yaw Owusu

Born 1992, Yaw Owusu creates sculptural installations that repurpose found objects, shifting otherwise worthless materials into things of value and other realities. His work is a meditation on how value in itself is made and unmade, while the approach is rooted in a sense of playful alchemy that embraces the complexities of symbolism and meaning. 


Owusu was part of the selected artists for the 89plus workshop at the Nubuke Foundation in 2015. He participated in Part IV International Artist Project Residencyin Berlin in 2016, and his works have been included in group exhibitions in Ghana and across the world including the Kumasi Locomotive Shed, the Chale Wote Art Festival in Jamestown, the Science and Technology Museum in Accra; Museum of African Contemporary Art Al Maaden in Marrakech, the ArtX Fair 2018 in Lagos, Nigeria, Galerie 102in Berlin, and Gallery1957, Accra, which currently represent the artist. He is the recipient of the  Kuenyehia Art Prize for contemporary Ghanaian Art, 2018. He lives and works between Ghana and New York.
