WIZ KUDOWOR - PINTURA - GHANA




Born in 1957 in Takoradi, Ghana, Wisdom ‘Wiz’ Kudowor’s painting career spans over 30 years. He graduated from the University of Science and Technology in Ghana with a first class honours degree in Fine Art. His bold paintings reference the traditional forms and symbols of Ghana’s rich cultural history, while also drawing inspiration from cubist and futurist styles. Wiz’s instantly recognisable style of abstracted figures, scenes and shapes are created using a palette knife and roller brush. The use of these tools – the brush for laying large areas of colour and the knife for more detailed work – is a technique he developed early on in his practice.

Wiz’s public commissions include a relief mural at the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park in Accra, Ghana. He has exhibited widely across Africa, Europe, Asia, and the US. His works can be found in a number of international collections including the Ministry of Culture, People’s Republic of China; the African American Museum, Texas, USA; Ghana National Museum, Accra, Ghana; and the Osaka Prefecture Contemporary Art Collection, Osaka, Japan.

Wiz lives and works in Accra, Ghana.
