Elolo Bosoka (b.1991) is a Ghanaian artist who works and lives between Accra and Kumasi. He permanently works with blaxTARLINES KUMASI— the project space and contemporary art incubator at the Department of Painting and Sculpture, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science &
Technology (KNUST) in Ghana— and is pursuing his Ph.D. at KNUST.
Bosoka appropriates objects from the mundane corners of the urban environment to enquire into the notion of art-asplace, economic exchange, materiality, and history. He makes installations, short films, objects, drawings and ‘see through’ soft sculptures.
He has participated in blaxTARLINES KUMASI’s trilogy of large-scale exhibitions organized at the Museum of Science and Technology in Accra since 2015— “the Gown Must go to Town” (2015), “Cornfields in Accra” (2016) and “Orderly, Disorderly” (2017).
Bosoka had his first solo exhibition in 2018 titled, “Lines, Planes and Ridges in between” in Kumasi, Ghana. He has participated in other group exhibitions such as the Chale Wote Street Art Festival (2016), and “YOUNG African ART” (2019) organized by YAG/ garage in Pescara Italy.
