Musah Yussif

Yussif was born in Accra-Ghana on 15th July 1997. Growing up as a Muslim in Nima, He had always loved the idea of image-making and visual narratives. The language of images spoke to him more dialectically than words. His interest in making drawings as a form of art developed during his years in High school. Yussif’s practice is majorly based on making drawings of figures and abstract forms often caught in solemn or staged activities. His works are influenced by the subject of death, war, grief, and memory. His drawings weave mulple source references from religious images, war photographs, news media, and historical events . Yussif is currently pursuing MFA in painting and sculpture at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology ( KNUST ).
