Agyeman Ossei’s cross-disciplinary practice attempts a linkage of the symbolic, semiotic and metaphysical in art. He dialogically relates painting, collage and sculpture as mediums of expanding Asante linguistic proverbial and philosophical ideas. His works celebrate cultural classics, literature, poetry, etc and memorializes them through carving, modeling, painting and dramaturgy.

He has translated and adapted literary works into theatre: notably “The Beautyful Ones are Not Yet Born” and “Osiris Rising” by the poet, novelist and scholar Ayi Kwei Armah.
