Evans Nii Adjetey Adjei is an energetic young artist with aspirations of broad success. Born in 1976, he attended art school, studying abstract and semi-abstract painting, texture, and graphic design. After graduating he went on to teach children how to combine art and textiles, especially the kente designs sponsored by UNESCO in affiliation with the Associated School Project Network.
Evans tells us, "My improvisations of colorful kente cloth designs are derived and inspired by my cultural background as well as the natural objects I find in life.

Evans work has been exhibited throughout Ghana, as well as in Canada and the USA.
