Art of Our Times: Sena Tues

“Sometimes when you’re in a dark place you think you’ve been buried but you’ve actually been planted” – Sena Tues

 

About Me !!

Kwabena, Sena Alexander was born on September 23, 1978, at Korle Bu, but comes from the Volta region of Ghana and presently resides in the capital city of Accra. His early flair for drawing and playing with colors obviated a talent that initiated his foray into the luminous world of art and saw him further his education at the Image Horizon Art School in 2009, after his Junior High schooling. He proceeded to the prestigious Ghanatta College of Art and Design at Accra Ridge, specializing in painting and drawing. Also known as Sena Tuesday, he is currently a self-employed, full-time studio artist. His foray into the arts has led him into the realms of Neoexpressionism and supremacism, with his studio ‘Mamprobi’ currently located at Nii saka street_Agenda, in Accra, Ghana.

As an artist, he believes that his Artworks are a potent tool for transforming the world, thus making it a better place for all. Hence his love for adventure, openness to creative possibilities, and meeting new people. Contemporary art is the art of our times and reflects who we are individually and as a society. It engages the eye and the mind and can open doors and windows to places such as Ghana and worldwide. So it should not be difficult to live with such an engaging and interesting form of expression. Yet, as a designer of crafts and a collector myself, I see that not enough people enjoy the opportunity to live with art. So I paint my own reality, “beyond melodies, beyond words. You know, painting something that defines the love of the land is good Africa. I learned to play the instruments of Love,” I Love to paint in black..I always say a photograph shouldn’t be just a picture; it should be a philosophy.”

 

The Boyz… Acrylic paint on canvas, mixed media. The great artists of the past were aware that human life is full of chaos and suffering. But they had a remedy for this. And the name of that remedy was ‘beauty’. The beautiful work of art brings consolation in sorrow and affirmation in joy. It shows human life to be worthwhile. I noticed what a difference a picture could make to the ambience of a room, and indeed how shifting work around could change a room’s whole feeling.
