Edmund K Boateng is an artist specializing in Photography, Pencil Drawing and Film making currently based in Columbus Ohio.
Edmund, being born and raised in Ghana, has a background in the Ghana film industry as a set designer and has incorporated his love for film making into his photography to create film still like photographs. He also has given mention that his passion to pursue art was heavily influenced by his father being talented in leather working.
Being a self-taught artist he has spent many long days and nights dedicated to researching and learning new techniques to challenge himself to create art in unique ways by using different mediums.
Edmund has shown both his hyper-realistic pencil drawings and his photography at Sharon Weiss Gallery where he has been represented since 2017. He has also had three pieces of his artwork, two photos and one drawing, displayed as murals in the short north art district in Columbus.
