Gabosia is a series of prints by Amartey Golding started 2013 during a period of reflection on the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of his father. The series explores how storytelling is used instinctively as a tool to provide solace and answers.

The pieces are haunting and satirical, using images and characters put together from various google images, news reports and reality TV, their likenesses eliciting a dark comedy when so clearly derooted from their typically esteemed cultural image. Despite the theme, Gabosia uses Amartey's reality of not knowing his fathers last moments as an opportunity to fill in the gaps with romance, service and optimism. ​

Born and raised as a Rastafarian between London, Cambridge and Ghana, Amartey Golding was born in London in 1988 to an Anglo Scottish mother, Ghanaian father and Jamaican stepfather. Preferring to work with mediums he is untrained in, to date his practice has incorporated chainmail making, printmaking, film, photography, ballet, fashion and wig making. 

These prints are signed in plate, hand numbered and comes with a signed certificate.
