Daniel Dzonu Clarke

Daniel Dzonu Clarke is a mixed media artist based in London of British-Ghanaian Descent. Growing up in London his passion for skateboarding led to a fascination with obscure architectural forms, and the way urban environments could be reinterpreted as spaces for play. Exploring through this lens, in search of new structures to skate, he found inspiration for his other passion, drawing.

He furthered his practice at Camberwell College of Arts, studying Illustration. Over the last decade, his work has been awarded by galleries and museums such as the V&A and the Barbican, and featured internationally in The New Yorker, Wallpaper, numerous Penguin publications and more.

Travelling abroad for work, he filled spare moments documenting the beauty of his new surroundings. These drawings inspired the vibrant, abstract landscape paintings that would define his artistic practice. This exploration has since evolved to textiles and ceramics.

He recently completed an artist residency at the Kokrobite Institute in Ghana, where he worked with local horticulturists and educators to develop a series of hand batiked tapestries celebrating the local natural landscape. This was an exciting opportunity to step away from familiar manmade concrete environments, and delve into natural landscapes while exploring his own Ghanaian heritage.
