Wiz Kudowor

Accra, Ghana

Wisdom Kudowor who is popularly known as “Wiz” is the “transcultural visionary” as described by art experts, was born in 1957 in Takoradi. Graduated with a first class honours degree in fine arts at the College of Art at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi in 1981. He now lives and works in his artist studio in Dzorwulu, Accra – Ghana.
Wiz Kudowor works depict Cubist and Futurist shapes and designs in his paintings, but despite their modernism the artworks of Wiz simultaneously rejuvenate traditional forms and aesthetics of Ghana’s cultural history. He uses ancient symbols and aesthetic elements derived from Ghana’s rich cultural heritage as an artistic tool to highlight space and structure colourful configurations on his canvasses.
Wiz works with a foam roller and a palette knife and creates strongly coloured and intense paintings which combine styles, themes and expressive patterns from different cultural backgrounds in a way which made him earn the name “transcultural visionary”. Wiz Kudowor has been exhibited in solo and group shows for almost 30 years with exhibitions in Africa, Europe, Asia and the U.S.
