Denyse Gawu-Mensah

Denyse 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.

Gawu-Mensah is a member of the “Asafo Black” art collective. 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 hosted in Nigeria.
