In Conversation: David Oppong
Friday May 14, 2021 | 5:00 PM Join the National accessArts Centre as we celebrate the online launch of David Oppong’s publication “Resiliency Forest.” The event will begin with the presentation of two recent artist interviews, with conversation to follow.
David’s publication responds to his participation in Stride Gallery’s 2020 exhibition, “We’re All Here Together, Still.” Installed during the first phase of the pandemic, two window-displayed artworks by National accessArts Centre artists David Oppong & Adeel Sadiq explored the meaning of resiliency during extraordinary times.
This project is made possible through the generous support of Stride Gallery alongside funding from Calgary Arts Development, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and Canada Council for the Arts.

David A. Oppong is an artist currently residing in Calgary, Alberta. He was born in Accra, Ghana, and was the first born to parents of Ghanaian descent. Oppong moved to Canada in December of 2017.
Oppong loves to capture emotional scenarios through photography and drawing. He often uses his art as a way to process, reflect on, and learn about situations represented through television and movies. Reproducing various scenarios helps Oppong understand different situations. Framing is very important to Oppong, and he uses angles, perspective, posture, and facial expressions to share his insights. He also loves the lines and designs of sports cars, which is a passion shared between him and his father.
