The artist who makes colours talk
Audrey Micah, Ghanadot

Accra, March 5, Ghanadot - Vincent Yegbe was born 20th March 1976 at Akatsi in the Volta Region of Ghana. His interest in arts was realised as a little boy even before he started his primary and secondary education at Wute also in the Volta Region where he exhibited his artistic skills which won him a lot of awards at school.

Yegbe continued to pursue a course in Arts (Painting and spraying) at Senyo Arts at Ho which is now an arts college.

There, he built on his desire of becoming one of Ghana's acclaimed painters. He won several awards from the African sub-region including taking the first position in a regional competition in Ghana.

Now he does abstract paintings with acrylic and oil colours on canvas, pots and many others through which he expresses his feelings and ideas to the world.

With a harmonious selection of colours, mixtures of paint to make different hues of colour, he is able to make his composition express meaning to his patrons. His reasoning is that each art piece must tell it all.
With the help of very good friends, he has held many successful exhibitions both at home and in several parts of the world including Europe, America and various parts of Africa.
To him arts is a medium of expression of one's ideas and feelings. He takes inspiration from children who he says inspire him a lot. Many who come across his paintings directly understands him.
Vincent knows his works inspires people a lot. Thus he takes enough time to work his art pieces to perfection.
"Art is my life and as important to me as the air I breathe".


He is usually referred to as "the man who lets colours talk for themselves".
