Musah Swallah is a visual artist born and raised in Accra, Ghana. Musah studied visual arts at Presbyterian Boys’ 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.

Musah’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.
