David at Work
I'm a painter, creative art director, art photographer, mural, and graffiti. I'm from Ghana ready to travel globally to work. You can also follow my Instagram page (kwabena_webb) to see some of my work
David believes the world we live in is a journey, and as humans everybody has a divine gift. We are oblige to use our gift to make the world a better place for ourselves as we journeyed through this world. We all have a different roles as humans that is why even in the art fraternity we all don’t have to be artist before promoting art, we have people who are art collectors, promoters and even managers. All these people come together to achieve a common goal, this is how we can build our world by playing our individual roles effectively. Life as an artist is so fulfilling because he finds joy in practicing it (3 years ago, a lady keep visiting me in my studio on several occasion, so one day I asked why she always keep being around me and her reply really light up my spirit, she said “I keep coming here because staring at your paintings gives my soul peace within”. The artist works project the economic challenges and project the nature of the Ghanaian society. He also believe that children are the future and find delight in impacting young talents in Ghana
David Kwabena Hammond was born on 4th June 1991 in Hohoe Volta Region Ghana. He started his elementary school in Hohoe New Town Basic School. He started his art at a very young age, and his inspiration of becoming an artist was from his uncle’s sketch book (my uncle always sketch characters he saw in movies whenever he visit the cinemas, I really cherish his sketch book). David Kwabena Hammond graduated from Ho Technical University, where he studied Industrial Art (painting 2013-2016). He continue his studies at the University of Education Winneba Ghana, where he obtain Post-Diploma in basic education. He practice art to earn a living, he also has a Club (The Creative Kids) which he help train talented/creative kids in his community. When you don’t see him painting he is taking photographs, when he is not taking photograph he is swimming that is what he does at his leisure time.
Visual art education is very important, especially to the African artists to evolve and meet the Western world for us to be able to sell our culture worldwide.
He loves to work with vibrant colors on canvas, his work is inspired and based on social challenges and the lifestyle of the Ghanaian community. The love for pictures made him ventured into photography, he also believes in uniqueness and originality so he fuses painting with photography. His photography is always base on conceptuality. He works with high profile models that are ready to work whenever he is inspired about something. He loves to work on big panels like murals and graffiti.
"My art is going to impact, beautify, educate, and inform the people in my community".
"I see myself impacting the little ones by helping them sharpen their skills, and putting up exhibitions around the globe selling my works and our culture."
"As a visual artist I'm interested in anything that sees's the importance of art and art projects, and it's a great opportunity to fellowship with Ubuntu Art Collaborative International."
Just received his Master's in Art (Fine and Applied) in 2023 from Tai Solarin University of Education, Ogun State, Nigeria
