About Vincent Frimpong

Represented Artist

Vincent is a contemporary ceramist who was born in Accra but raised in Kumasi. He became part of the art world in Kumasi Academy Senior High in 2011. He pursued a BA degree program in industrial art (ceramics) and served as a teaching assistant in Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). Vincent’s work is represented in multiple exhibitions and was recently named the best ceramics student 2018/2019 academic year. He is currently offering his MFA at the University of Arkansas.

Over the course of my life I’ve been exploring the question ‘What does it mean to be an African?’ Affirming the core of African power within myself and others, permeates everything I do and all that I represent. My objects and installations at once draw upon history and simultaneously comment on the present. I have embraced mixed media processes to express and explore ideas regarding the richness of African history and pressing contemporary concerns addressing where we come from, where we are and where we are going.

I use mix media installation to create a space that allows for open dialogue between the audience and the space utilizing some elements of Ghanaian culture and human hand as a tool to explore the idea of what it means to be an African. As a concerned artist, I see, feel, analyze and make work to examine these realities. I am influenced as an artist by what I have been through since childhood, recollecting back the memories and experiences throughout my life while I elaborate on why they are significant to me specifically. I make installations that link the past,present and the future for Ghanaians.

I want my work to draw audiences to experience the richness of some aspects of African culture and their relevance to our contemporary world. It is my desire to make sculptural installations that communicate ideas to make viewers recognize that what people think they know is not always the whole truth.
