Harold Offeh is an artist working in a range of media including performance, video, photography, learning and social arts practice, often employing humour as a means to confront the viewer with an assessment of contemporary culture. Offeh’s current project ‘Covers’ sees the artist embody images from popular culture in a series of attempts to transform music album covers from the 1970s and 80s by black singers. He continues to work in a number of diverse and situational contexts.
Harold Offeh studied at the University of Brighton and the Royal College of Art, London. He lives in Cambridge and works in London and Leeds.
