At the Button Factory January 8 to 29
Nana Bediako was born in 1987 in Ghana, where he lived and schooled until he moved to Canada in 2004 to further his education. At his high school, Notre Dame Catholic School in Ajax, he had the opportunity to hone his talent by participating in many youth art exhibitions and competitions where he earned numerous awards and constantly excelled.
Currently in his third year at the University of Waterloo, Nana's extraordinary prowess continually distinguishes him. Nana's main sources of inspiration are the people around him, and his rich African heritage which brilliantly and proudly shines through his collections. The future of this prolific, artistic genius can only be imagined, as his limit is way beyond the sky. It should therefore not come as a surprise that this young artists has earned himself a well deserved alias: the promising son of Africa.
