TAIYE GODBODY – Short Listed 2023 – The Kuenyehia Prize for Contemporary Art

Taiye’s vision as an artist and person comes from his ability to simultaneously understand things from multiple angles

Taiye’s vision as an artist and person comes from his ability to simultaneously understand things from multiple angles. He has lived in various locales, which has given him a cosmopolitan sensibility. After he graduated from the International School of Kenya, he moved to New York City to pursue art.

His years in Ghana and Kenya give him critical insight into global geopolitics and the history of race and representation that belie a vision far beyond his years. His practice has focused on conceptual themes around race and power.

He is developing a visual language for empowering black figures to speak back to viewers and challenge assumptions of sexuality and objectification. He has an excellent eye as an artist and sharp critical insight in both aesthetic and intellectual realms. His thoughtfulness and sensitivity are those of someone far more advanced in years.

He is a future leader who is creative, curious, and entrepreneurial.
