Born and raised as a Rastafarian between London, Cambridge and Ghana, Amartey Golding was born in London in 1988 to an Anglo Scottish mother, Ghanaian father and Jamaican stepfather.

 

Amartey's work documents his introspective process of identifying and understanding the primal unifying themes of humanity using his own personal context as a starting point.

 

Exploring the seemingly contradictory fabric of our human condition, Amartey invites viewers to join him in this self implicating endeavour. 

Preferring to work with mediums he is untrained in, to date his practice has incorporated chainmail making, printmaking, film, photography, ballet, fashion and wig making.
