Digital Artists, Hanson Akatti, shares dates for his premiere art exhibition, Stargate Odyssey. Created in the same structure as a Hip Hop LP, the 16-piece exhibition offers a one-of-a-kind art experience for each of the three different locations it will occur.

Stargate Odyssey is structured around minor elements that have helped Hanson hone his creativity, the most prominent being a hip hop EP. With Sixteen pieces, representing 16 tracks of a typical hip hop album, Stargate Odyssey was created surrounding the themes of androgyny, alternate realities, identity, inter-cultural influence, and femininity.

The exhibition also takes the form of small intimate concerts, each day with a different mood, setting, and experience from the next.

The first exhibition takes place at Untamed Empire Concept Store in Ridge on 19th November 2017 at 4 pm. The second exhibition is happening on 24th November 2017 at 4 pm at Elle Lokko Warehouse in Osu. The third and final exhibition happens at The Shop Accra in Osu on 2nd December, 2017 at 5pm.

Born on January 21st, 1989 in Accra, Ghana, Hanson Akatti has helped shape the growing art form in Accra. His whimsical yet pseudo-realistic artwork changed the face of digital art and animation in the country, with the introduction of intricate design and attention to detail. He again flipped the cards with his digitally designed magazine covers of Canoe, Dust and A.20 magazines. Hanson’s artwork has been influential in transforming the direction of album arts in Ghana and Africa at large. His brilliant work for DJ Juls’, Fokn Bois, EL and Efya has been a determining factor for the effort now ascribed to album artworks in Africa.
