Originally from Ghana and now based in Sunderland, Anthony Amoako-Attah is a talented glass artist who manipulates glass to look like woven fabric. He concentrates on social, political, and cultural issues that intertwine with integration, migration, dislocation and personal identity through the use of Ghanaian traditional Adinkra symbols and Kente fabric patterns.

Having obtained an MA (glass) in 2016, Anthony is currently a PhD student in Art and Design (glass and ceramics) at the University of Sunderland. The accomplished artist was also awarded Winner in the Aspiring Glass Artists 2020 category in Warm Glass UK’s The Glass Prize. With his fascinating culture firmly embedded at the heart of every piece of artwork, Anthony will take his audience on an eye-opening exploration of exceptional finesse at the Vane gallery space located in Gateshead town centre.

If you are curious and fancy embarking on an intricate journey with fabric, then keep an eye out for this wonderful exhibition.

A Journey With Fabric exhibits at Vane, Gateshead from Thursday 20th April – Saturday 13th May.
