Jeremiah Quarshie

Jeremiah Qrauarshie was born in Accra, Ghana. He lives and works in Lagos, Nigeria. Quarshie obtained a (B.F.A.) from Krame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, KNUST, Kumasi (2007).

He began exhibiting in 2007, in a group show at the National Museum of Ghana, Accra. He went on to exhibit internationally in Amsterdam. Munich. New York and London.

Jeremiah Quarshie’s artworks explore the boundaries between physical and digital production; considering the construction of imagery, his work investigates the nature of art itself. Through detailed portraiture, emphasising the connectedness between people otherwise divided by racial, social, economic or geographical conditions, Quarshie reveals an acute social awareness. Using people who he has strong personal relationships with as well as ordinary women he scouts for as models, Quarshie documents individuals in actual and invented roles – including beauty queens, businesswomen and labourers – to demonstrate ideas of hope in personal and imagined situations and against failing systems while often making reference to historical events, ideas and personalities.

During his residency Quarshie will work on his project

Grey – an artistic investigation on the effects of race and culture in interracial families
