Musah Swallah is a visual artist born and raised in Accra, Ghana. Musah studied visual arts at Presbyterian Boysâ€™ Senior High School, followed by an apprenticeship with artists Mozzay and Akirash. Through their mentorship, Musah was able to forge a career as an artist and become an active member of his community. Musah sought to share these same opportunities with the next generation of artists in Nima.
Musahâ€™s paintings, sculptures, and mixed media works render stories that reflect Ghana’s cultural values, and everyday life. He uses them as tools for self-expression, creating awareness, provoking dialogue, and transforming society creating artwork that speaks to youth aspirations, urban environments, and the phenomena of globalization.
