Early Beginnings:

From the earliest stages of Oware’s life, his affinity for and engagement with art were evident. Memories of his childhood are filled with images of him shaping intricate sculptures from clay dough and constructing imaginative worlds using LEGO bricks.


As he grew, his artistic journey continued to flourish, with his drawing skills developing and his creativity finding outlets in activities like sketching and painting. His artistic explorations took a new turn in 2015 when he embarked on the journey of graphic design during his high school years.


These foundational experiences not only honed his artistic skills but also kindled a passion that would guide him on his path to becoming the accomplished and versatile visual artist known as DatArtGod.

He co-founded HATCH, a prominent media group on campus.


After university, he excelled at renowned organizations like KOFAS Media, where he refined his skills from 2018 to 2019.
