Nana is a self-taught artist who has explored charcoal, pencil, watercolor, acrylic and oil painting. In exploring these mediums, he created frames for his works, which then took on lives of their own by becoming the artwork. Nana not only works with metals from automobiles, but also integrates other materials to create stories that highlight the hardworking African – a theme that runs through most of his works.
Since his first exhibition in the year 2000, Nana has been exhibited both locally in Ghana, and internationally. His commissioned works are showcased in prominent spaces such as Coco lounge and Mercedes Benz Dealership (Silver Star), The Kofi Annan International Peace Keeping Center, Center for Democracy and Development, Standard Chartered Bank head office, and the Supreme Court of Ghana.
