visual arts and culture of Ghana

Ms Odile Tevie

Odile graduated from the University of Ghana in 1986 and worked in various positions with banking software group Misys, before managing the IT operations of Ghana International Bank in London.

After setting up her own art gallery, Black Swan, in the English capital, Odile worked with several Ghanaian, Togolese and Nigerian artists, to promote their work.

A founding member and director of Nubuke Foundation, Odile is passionate about providing alternative opportunities for children wanting to learn about Ghanaian culture.

Odile says, “The Foundation is concerned by the erosion of our culture and I believe it’s necessary to protect the very essence of what makes us Ghanaian – something which will always set us apart.”
