Eric Adjetey Anang is the inaugural Thurber Artist-in-Residence, selected by a jury in 2019. Eric is a woodworker, sculptor and fantasy coffin carpenter. Yes, you read that correctly. Eric, originally born in Teshie, Ghana, grew up around his family’s business the Kane Kwei Carpentry Workshop. At eight years old, he began helping around the workshop, learning the tools of the trade that supported his family’s life-long work of fantasy coffin making.
