Offeh often employs humour as a means to confront the viewer with historical narratives and contemporary culture and is interested in the space created by the inhabiting or embodying of history. His current project 'Covers' sees the artist embody images from popular culture in a series of attempts to transform music album sleeves by black singers from the 1970s and '80s. He studied Critical Fine Art Practice at The University of Brighton and Fine Art at the Royal College of Art.

He has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally. In 2017 he’ll be exhibiting as part of Untitled: art on the conditions of our time at New Art Exchange in Nottingham, UK and Tous, des sangs-mêlés at MAC VAL, Museum of Contemporary Art in Val de Marne, France. He lives in Cambridge and works in Leeds and London, UK.
