Isshaq Ismail (born c.1989 in Accra, Ghana) is a multidisciplinary artist and, a product of Ghanatta College of Arts and Design. He investigates and explores grotesque figures and textures in his paintings. Ismail’s works are a conversation on place and identity, providing an intimate look at social, cultural and political realities of living in this dynamic 21st century and poetically expressing how those realities ultimately impact one’s identity, and all about emotions and moods of the society. In 2015 and 2016 Ismail was shortlisted as one of the top ten artists in Ghana for the Kuenyehia Prize for Contemporary Art.
Ismail’s work is exhibited at Efiɛ Gallery, courtesy of the Kuenyehia Trust for Contemporary Art
