ABOUT

Hey there, and welcome!

 

My name is Moses Kanneh and I'm a visual artist/illustrator, I create art across different mediums depending on the nature of the project at hand .

I'm originally from Sierra Leone in far West Africa, where I spent a few years of my early childhood and shortly moved to the UK with my parents (due to civil war in the 90's) and have spent most of my life in the UK.

In my practise I like creating art that has an eclectic quality that is both beautiful and mysterious, often causing the viewer to pause, think and explore what they see before them but also that which is within them. 

 

As my work has grown and evolved over the years along with my understanding of storytelling through art, I've noticed that my art echoes themes of healing, light, 

out of the broken experiences we go through in life and coming to terms with these issues to provide a sense of healing and outlet for the things we tend to hide.

I am currently working on a personal project called 'Two Tales'. A story about a protagonist in search of purpose and a stranger in search of a soul, my very first silent graphic novel.

I would like to continue working with graphic novels and illustration. This is a medium that excites me as I'm interested in visual storytelling.
