YVETTE NSIAH

Yvette Nsiah is a Ghanaian born in Brooklyn New York. Her primary medium is a wired glass with a grid, featuring portraits with colors scaling between black and white. Her work serves as a portal highlighting the vast contrasts in classes, as well as the many similarities binding them as does a grid, and how transparency is the first step to repairing suppressed discrepancies.

She is a trained teacher receiving her bachelors in fine arts and education at the State University of New York at Albany. She represented Ghana in the 2008 Miss Universe competition held in Vietnam. She is a self-taught artist who has exhibited her glass works twice at the annual Chale Wote art festival in James Town, Accra Ghana, and recently had a solo exhibition at the Open House Studio Accra gallery.
