Ablade Glover

Ghanaian 1934- 

Born in 1934 in Accra, Ghana, Ablade Glover lives and works in Ghana. Trained in Ghana, the UK, and the USA, he has accumulated many distinctions that underline his significance as an artist and educator, both in Ghana and across the international art scene. Glover’s work reveals his vibrant passion for life, activity, and colour. Using warm impastoed pigments to express the sun and heat of his country, Glover depicts animated scenes that mirror the exuberant diversity of Africa: its bustling market stalls, brightly attired crowds, and the dynamic energy that is Ghana. The universality of Glover’s work is reflected in the breadth and variety of his collectors. His work can be found in collections such as the Imperial Palace Collection, Tokyo, Japan; UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, France; and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, USA. He has exhibited extensively in West Africa; Europe; the USA; and Japan. Glover also occupies a major position in Ghana’s contemporary art scene, as Founder and Director of the internationally acclaimed Artists Alliance Gallery in Accra, Ghana. Among Glover's recent solo exhibitions, feature 80th Anniversary, October Gallery, London, UK (2014); Art Dubai, Dubai, UAE (2013); 75th Anniversary, October Gallery, London, UK (2009). Among his recent group exhibitions feature Art 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair, Somerset House, London, UK (2014); Transmission Part 2, Tasneem Gallery, Barcelona, Spain (2012); I See You, Tasneem Gallery, Barcelona, Spain (2010); Joburg Art Fair, Johannesburg, South Africa (2008/09/10/11).
