Jonathan Nuamah is a self-taught pencil artist based in Accra, Ghana. Born and raised in Japan, Jonathan has had the love for art from a very young age starting his simple drawings using the software Paint and eventually moving on to sketchbook drawings and illustrations.
After moving to Ghana and finishing secondary school, he began drawing realistic artworks, taking his inspiration mainly from artistic references and from imagination. He is especially inspired by scenery and picturesque scenes in films. His love for architecture and interior design also contributes to this passion. His preferred mediums are graphite and charcoal and uses a variety of shading techniques such as blending stumps, paint brushes and cotton wool. Over the years he honed his skill through learning and practicing continually alongside education.
He works as a freelance pencil artist with individual clients from around the world who commission portraits and original works from him. Because of his specialty in interior design, he has also worked as a design consultant for particular clients.
