Ibrahim Mahama is a Ghanaian multimedia artist. He is unquestionably one of West Africa's most talented and well-known artists. The Ghanaian artist typically uses abandoned materials in his work.
He collects trash and transforms it into something beautiful. Jute sacks, shoeshine boxes, sewing machines, records, pictures, smoked fish grills, and even vintage planes are among the items on display.
Ibrahim Mahama was named to The Africa Report's list of the 100 most important Africans in 2019. The most intriguing aspect of Mahama's story is that one of his works of art was sold for a whopping $1 million.
He spent some of the money on six obsolete planes that he converted into schools. He is now at the helm of an artistic movement aimed at inspiring and empowering his community.
He's famous for sewing jute sacks and utilizing them to drape structures around the world. He has already displayed his art in a number of international exhibits. Despite his global reach, Mr. Mahama enjoys investing in his home country of Ghana.
