Kwaku Reez Opoku

Immersing himself in a profound study of music, art, and design both within and beyond academic realms, Kwaku Opoku has developed a versatile sensibility, seamlessly integrating these disciplines. He believes this fusion creates environments conducive to meaningful conversations and interactions. Over the past 14 years, Kwaku grappled with a neurological condition, compelling him to confront identity in his work—an introspective dialogue with himself. This inward-facing conversation shaped his deep investigative mindset, evident in various projects such as Kenteverse—a multi-faceted Art, Design & Music endeavor exploring Kente's inherent power to create. 

In Kenteverse, he primarily employed sounds from the weaving process to generate novel Kente designs and experiences, providing a glimpse into a universe driven by Sound & Rhythm. On a profound level, projects like Kenteverse have sparked discussions about the intrinsic power sound wields in shaping Language, History, and even Fashion.

Currently based in Basel, Kwaku is actively creating new works and exploring diverse art forms within his practice—ranging from sound to sculpture and everything in between. As a co-director of Small Hype, a design agency with a presence in Ghana and the US, Kwaku actively engages in environmental endeavors, aligning with his passion for meaningful projects.
