Abdul Mumuni Ghana
About the Artist
Abdul Mumuni is originally from Northern Ghana, but current resides in Accra. Abdul learned to paint after deciding that given his lack of education, it was the best manner in which to earn a living. To study and perfect his craft, he lived with a mentor painter in Accra for three years who taught him to paint; today, as a teacher, his emotions move him. Abdul reports that each painting he produces requires at least three days to produce, as each coat of paint must dry before he is able to add another to convey the depth of the work.
