Fatric Bewong -- Fine Art
Fatric Bewong was born on the March 1981, in Tarkwa, Ghana. She graduated in 2006 from the College of Art Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, with a BFA in Painting. She did her National Service with the Ghana National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI).
Since the completion of this, she has gone into fulltime studio practice as a painter.
She believes her artistic nature can be traced to her mother who was a batik, tie&dye maker. She used to lend her mum a hand by cutting out patterns and helping with colour combination at that age of ten (10) years. Even though her parents saw her talent, she was determined to read science in high school.
They however guided her interest towards the study of art. Interestingly, she excelled in her lessons and proceeded to the University to study painting.
Fatric is always discovering new ways of creating and expressing herself through her art. she state’s “It’s time to ascertain new ways of expression and representing our mindscapes just like earlier generations.”
