Seth Clottey’s paintings embrace and demonstrate his commitment to a wide range of subjects, from market scenes to beach scenes, city capes and ghetto lifestyles. These are evident in his current preoccupation with the changes around him, changes he feels should be captured and recorded for posterity. A critic once said, “with Seth, you can almost hear the noise of the market or the sound of the traffic in this painting”.
Seth Clottey is a very gentle, refreshingly quiet artist and a good listener with a remarkable eye for detail. Seth’s strength is in his quiet disposition and beneath his urbane exterior are passion and commitment.
He also has a fondness for sculpture, which he sculpts himself with eagerness just like his paintings. Seth is mostly self-taught but was inspired by his late uncle, Krotei Tetteh an artist with a delicate touch.
He, in turn, has a son Serge Attukwei Clottey, a talented artist who is prominent at home and abroad.
