When one is possessed by the mind, the parrot in the head keeps repeating dead patterns or occurrences. But if silence is experienced, one dives deep into it and finds the self which was always knocking at the door.
Edward Ofosu is a self-taught artist from Ghana. From the age of eight he knew he would be an artist. He wanted to paint as a career but was encouraged to study science by his family. By 1997 he could no longer ignore his creative passion so started painting in his spare time. Edward moved to London seven years ago and has participated in group exhibitions. In 2009 he was awarded a runner-up in the Artist of the year award in portraiture, organized by Artists & Illustrators magazine.
