Artist in Focus: Denyse Gawu-Mensah

Artist in Focus: Denyse Gawu-Mensah

From 6th September until 18th September Guest Projects Digital is spotlighting the work of Ghanaian artist Denyse Gawu-Mensah across both the website and Guest Projects social channels as part of the 2021 programme. 

Gawu-Mensah, is a female artist currently living and working in Ghana. A natural-born adventurer, she spends a lot of her time exploring and immersing herself in new experiences. When she isn’t out exploring, the artist’s wild imagination serves as the springboard for her creations. She believes curiosity and wonder is what fuels her wild imagination. She is a member of the “Asafo Black” art collective and together they have participated internationally in exhibitions like the Stellenbosch Triennale in South Africa and have held their own local exhibitions in Ghana. She has also exhibited in events hosted by institutions such as the 2020 Ake Arts and Book festival in Nigeria.
