Sintim Isaac was born in Ashanti region, Ghana on the 27th February,1996. He shown his artistic and creative talent at an early age. Producing wonderful graphite shadings and illustrations of almost any interesting picture he came across. At secondary school level he studied visual arts at Asanteman Senior high school, kumasi(2011-2014). In 2016, he moved to central region where he pursued a four year degree in art education at the University Of Education, Winneba. He was an intern at his secondary school in 2019. In 2020, he moved to kumasi, Ashanti region where he stays and work currently.
Sintim has worked with various media in his quest for a technique and media to be associated with. He is bais towards dry media. As a painter obsessed with the grains in woods, he liked the pleasing effect colors of wood veneer produced when composed together into a picture. This lead him to a technique called Marquetry. The artist refers to them as ‘wood paintings’.
Sintim portrays in his geometric shaped wood paintings, gaiety and hope with human figures, children particularly. His artworks captures the postures and expressions of deprived children. He sympathizes with their sense of struggle and isolation.
His art was selected for a juried open call art exhibition (calling across the distance,2020). It was organized by Emergent Art Space based in San Francisco, California
