Wisdom 'Wiz' Kudowor (born September 19, 1957) is one of Ghana's most respected and applauded contemporary artists.[citation needed]

Wiz studied at the College of Art, University of Science and Technology, Ghana. He graduated in 1981 with a first class honours degree in fine art.

He has designed and executed public works in Ghana including a relief mural at the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park. His works are widely held in both and public collections worldwide.

"Wiz is thought of by some as a trans-cultural visionary. His work simultaneously draws on and pushes beyond fixed spaces and identities in a dynamic search for unbounded universal truths. His recent work typically draws on the deeper meaning of African symbolism and composes from them enigmatic messages with intriguing titles. He has also been producing multilayered sensual works recently" (see images). --African Encounters
