Randy Abeka Abbam
"My exhibitions so far have been at school where I was nicknamed 'Spider,' the king of webs."
"My name is Randy Abeka Abbam (RAA), popularly known as 'Spider.' I was born on March 6, 1985 in eastern Ghana, but started my basic education in Nigeria, where I discovered my talent in art at that early age. I was later brought back to Ghana in 1993. I'm currently a second-year student majoring in art and design.
"As a young artist, I do not limit myself to my medium, but always experiment with the local tools and materials that I find in my environment. I produce works that range from abstracts to semi-abstracts and sometimes realism. During my first year in art school, I realized that thread on board is very unique. This medium has now dominated most of my works. I take my inspiration from God and nature, and also from the cultural heritage of my people.
My exhibitions so far have been at school where I was nicknamed 'Spider,' the king of webs. I have sold many works to local galleries, companies and individuals. One of my innermost dreams is to hold exhibitions of my own both at home and abroad. I have passion for art and I'm proud to be an artist."
We just received two pieces of art from Randy Abeka Abbam. We are absolutely delighted with the detail and beauty of the pieces. I plan on adding to the collection! They are my favorites...thank you!

Purchased the thread-work, "in harmony". It was shipped to my office and when I showed it to my co-workers, many wanted to buy it right on the spot. Naturally I said no! It is now prominently displayed in my entrance hallway and never fails to get a comment. Especially when guests realize it is thread-work!

I absolutely love the string art that I received the other day. You have a great talent and I wish you well in school and also on your exhibitions. I plan to buy some more of your beautiful art work.
