Contemporary Artist PART duce

Wisdom 'Wiz' Kudowor is currently considered one of Ghana's most affluent contemporary artists.
He has designed and executed public works in Ghana including a relief mural at the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park.

A lot of his current work involves patterning in an altered contemporary sense were random overlapping shapes and marks create a very traditional African pattern.
These shapes correlate though to modern urban life in Africa.
The First image Intimacy in Red is one of his paintings the bottom two sculptures are other works done by
El Anatsui an artist who creates clothes and sculptures from various western objects that have infiltrated African culture.
