Appiah Ntiaw is a contemporary African paintings artist in his early thirties, born in 1979 at Cape Coast, Ghana, West Africa.

Appiah's African artworks have been exhibited in Europe and various places in West Africa, including Ghana's capital city of Accra's National Museum and the castles of Cape Coast and Elmina.

Appiah Ntiaw has formal education merits in his craft of African art from Ghanatta College of Art and Design in Accra, Ghana's capital city, where his focus was on Painting and Graphic Design. His accreditation program spanned the time of three years.

Graduating in 2002, Appiah Ntiaw was later qualified to participate in the Ghana Association of Visual Artists annual art competition. Around the same time, Appiah and his colleague established an African art paintings gallery in Cape Coast, Ghana that they named "Step Beyond." Both emerging and established African artists displayed their works there, making it a central hub for the Cape Coast region for authentic, quality African paintings of all kinds.

Appiah Ntiaw is now a volunteer of Resulting fromĀ our conversations with Wycliffe Ndwiga, the following information here and on his information page are more of what we learned about his background and African paintings:

This gifted African artist is obviously one of the best in Kenya. His brothers are also some of the best: They are David Michuki and Daniel Njoroge, another artist on True African Art. Ndwiga's family all happen to be Kikuyu, one of the 42 tribes living in Kenya, East Africa.

Wycliffe Ndwiga is 44 years old, though he looks much younger. He has one other brother named Sam, who also can paint well, but works in another career.

Wycliffe is married and has three children: one daughter and two sons. Ndwiga's gentle demeanor and desire to share his African art paintings with the world tops off his gift.

Wycliffe Ndwiga started painting professionally in 1992, a time when political and economic struggles were particularly harsh on the country. His sole work focuses on animal wildlife paintings. Wycliffe has never traveled outside of Kenya, but his artwork has, with tourists buying it in galleries and bringing his African artwork home with them.

But how did Wycliffe begin painting and how did he know he had a talent?

As a child, Ndwiga says he was not exposed to the art supplies many children elsewhere perhaps had the luxury of growing up with in their homes and schools. Instead, he discovered his talent when he experimented every day drawing in the most readily available medium available to him, the dried out ground dirt around his home.

As he grew older, Wycliffe Ndwiga attended a school that did not include much art in the curriculum. His passion persisted however and he was lucky enough to have other artists mentor his gift to more of what it is today.

Ndwiga says that his inspiration for his subjects is the beautiful nature and life found in his country of Kenya. He says he often goes to the Maasai Mara, where there is much wildlife, and studies their environment, movement, shapes and colors. With his gift of art, he is easily able to transfer what he sees into an outline for a future painting.

Here at True African Art.com, we have been favored to exchange several conversations with Appiah, getting to know who is behind the hip fashion that is part of this young man's character. What we have found is that when one reaches out to this African paintings artist in sincerity, he reveals a depth of compassion and wisdom to his responsible character. He has clearly shown an understanding for the purpose of his art and can maturely identify it as his message of hope and inspiration for the human race. These beliefs that are engraved so deeply in Appiah's sense of being allow him to extend his talents and skills as an artist to discover a seemingly endless avenue of topics and techniques. Given this perspicuity and the vast experiences Appiah Ntiaw has undertaken at such a young age, he is without a doubt one of Ghana's most premier African artists.
