In pursuit of knowledge and enlightenment Awuku likes to explore environments that encourage creative expression.

My body of art is called Anansinisim. it was inspired by the Ghanaian mythical character kweku Anansi. Anansi is an Akan name given to the spider. I carefully fuse visual networking designs of the spider with historical Ghanaian Adinkra symbology to creat personal transitional designs on the body that re-eco knowledge and wisdom of our ancestors that are gradually loosing their sustainable values and norms to contemporary audiences.

 

I represent them with tales of great women here in Ghana and deities alike.
