Mawuli Quartey was born in the late 70’s in Accra Ghana. Mawuli Quartey’s initial interest was Agriculture. He however discovered Painting as his true passion and enrolled at the Kingbu Secondary School in Accra to study Visual Art.
Mawuli then enhanced his study with a course in Graphics, Painting and Textiles at the Ultimate School of Art also in Accra.
Quartey’s close association with Ben Agbeè, a more known and experienced Ghanaian artist, enhanced his quest to succeed as an artist himself.
He, through constant hard work and dedication, developed a unique style which he describes as “Semi Abstracted Cubism”, a combination of geometric and irregular forms infused with African imagery.
The sense of vibrant newness and sincerity clad in earthy colours and tones give Quartey’s paintings simple but captivating power.
Patrons of all nationality enjoy and collect his work.
His style ranges from impressionism to cubism. From there, Mawuli starts to develop his style which
can be described as “semi abstract in cubism” combining with geometric and irregular forms and
retains his African identity. His paintings have newness and sincerity with vibrant and earthly tone
colours enhancing vivid expression of his works with subtle elements from daily life form from all walks
of life. His works achieve a very appealing bold colour with sharps and yet dynamic.

found at the Loom Gallery, Artist Alliance and on the internet (www. novica.com)
Mawuli thanks God Almighty for his immense talent, his cousin Mr Ben Agbee and his parents for their
