Although  Tetteh was born in Los Angeles, California and has lived in New York City for the past twenty four years, he still derives inspiration from Ghana where he spent seventeen years of his life. The following is an excerpt from his current Artist Statement, ? Ghana?s rich tapestry of of fabrics and motifs shaped my sense of aesthetics.? Some  unique aspects of Tetteh?s work include sketching and painting with both hands simultaneously, an improvisational  practice  that usually generates symmetrical images. He also  constantly pursues precision when making his geometric sculpture, preferring the use of a mitre saw to sophisticated computer numerical control machines such as laser cutters.
