MohArt-620x620The Creative Arts Industry in Ghana is gradually seeing diversity. Aside music and movie production, young budding talents are emerging in the fine arts sector putting more focus on Graffiti Street Art.

To acknowledge the geniuses and struggles that led to the discovery of the African identity, MohArt and Wetwater Studio are having a graffiti art painting at the entrance of the Osu Mall on Africa Union Day, May 25 2015.

Dubbed the Africa Day Live Graffiti & Mural Painting, the Osu Oxford Street will come alive with street art inspired by South African anti-apartheid revolutionary leader, Nelson Mandela.

The facilitator of this art attack, multi-talented and award-winning artist Mohammed Awudu, says he chose to undertake this project because he believes in telling stories of great men through art for the youth to aspire to appreciable levels of success.
