Paintings by Ghanaian artist Wiz Kudowor

February 27, 2013


Ghanaian artist Wisdom 'Wiz' Kudowor is one of his country's the most respected contemporary artists. Known as a trans-cultural visionary, Wiz's work is influenced by the human form as a transformational agent and ancestral wisdom as an aesthetic tool. Travelling out to exhibitions transformed Wiz into knowing he could "tackle other things an not feel guilty about it. You are a human being first, African second. When I free myself from the trappings of being African, my work became more universal." (via africanartagenda)
