Born, 1988. Amartey Golding is British artist who explores the seemingly contradictory fabric of our human condition and invites viewers to join him in this self implicating endeavour. Using his own personal context and British pastimes as a starting point. Nostalgia, ceremony and violence tend to be the foundation upon which much of Amartey's work is based.
Making work that draws from the valuable conversations taking place within the different communities he belongs to, while at the same time putting those perspectives under scrutiny, Amartey's work is both self implicating and celebratory.
Preferring to work with mediums he is untrained in, to date Amartey's practice has incorporated drawing, printmaking, sculpture, chainmail, upholstery, film, photography, ballet and fashion.
