When asked what Afrogallonism is, his answer was, “Afrogallonism is a concept that I have been working with for around seventeen years now. Using yellow plastic gallon containers, my work is concerned with migration and interactions between Ghana and the West. The containers were originally used to store cooking oil that the West supplied to Ghana, and once discarded they are generally turned into plastic waste, which is problematic because we do not have many recycling structures here. By using them as an artistic material to them as an artistic material to cut, drill, and stitch for my sculptures, they migrate via my practice – selling them back to the West as artworks.”
