"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."
