    In his sculptures and installations, Dela Anyah transforms discarded objects as butyl inner tubes, polypropylene sacks, license plates and rubber tyres, into assemblages using garment-making techniques such as weaving and patchwork. In transforming discarded objects into assemblages, Ghanaian-born Dela Anyah considers the ways value and identity are expressed in discarded objects through the process of up-cycling. He dubs his practice Afrobutylism, coined after his predominant material of choice discarded butyl inner tubes, which pose environmental concerns due to burning and poor waste management in Ghana. Anyah was an artist in residence at the Noldor Residency in 2022. He came in as Second Runner Up for the Kuenyehia Prize in 2023. His work belongs in the collections of the Institute Museum of Ghana and the Isshaq Foundation in Accra, Ghana. https://delaanyah.com
