About the artist

Isshaq Ismail

Isshaq Ismail, born in 1989, is a Ghanain artist who depicts faces with exaggerated figures using thick impasto. Ismail’s moody portraits are an attempt to “break the mold” of painting by “subverting and interrogating the preconceived notion of beauty within the canon of painting.” Through his self-described style of “infantile semi-abstraction,” Ismail explores identity in the modern world. He has exhibited in Ghana, Germany, and the United States. Ismail’s work debuted at auction in 2021, and since August of 2021, eight of his works have sold for prices above $100,000. In December of that same year, he achieved a new record sale price at auction with “Unknown Faces 8,” 2018 selling for $275,000 at Christie’s in New York.
