Wiz Kudowor was commissioned to design and execute several public works in Ghana, including the relief mural at Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, a distinguished monument to some of the most important leaders of this nation.

His work reflects the modern African environment and the identity. The African symbols are the points of reference across which the artist visualizes a whole world of images. He also explores elements of his cultural background using visual language inspired by African symbolic imagery and mythology dating back to ancient Egypt.
