Serge Attukwei Clottey


(Born in 1985, Accra, Ghana. Lives and works in Accra.)

Serge Attukwei Clottey is the creator of ‘Afrogallonism,’ an artistic concept exploring the relationship between discarded yellow oil gallons in Ghana, and how they relate to ideas of consumption and necessity in the lives of modern Africans. This concept was most famously depicted in Clottey’s wide-scale, real-life, ‘Yellow Brick Road’ tapestry that he created in Accra, in 2018.  Clottey works with his GoLokal initiative; a grouping together of a band of creatives in an attempt to transform society through art. Clottey uses installation, performance, photography, and sculpture to explore histories and narratives of migration, slavery, and trade, while also challenging prevalent conceptions of gender roles and issues concerning inheritances and land rights, in modern-day Ghana. 

In August 2019, Clottey received the award of Honorary Doctorate of Arts from the University of Brighton. Clottey has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions worldwide, including Softening Borders (2020) at The Moody Center for the Arts At Rice University, Houston, USA; KUBATANA (2019), Vestfossen Kunstlaboratorium, Norway; and Solo Chorus (2019) at The Mistake Room, Los Angeles, USA.
