Samuel is a highly creative, versatile, detail oriented, with extensive knowledge in painting, sculpture and most aspects of art. He signs ‘PROPHASK’ and refers to his collection as “the land of colours”

Samuel Prophask Asamoah was born on the 14th February, 1981.He completed elementary school at the Asuoyeboah Metropolitan Assembly school in 1998 and had his secondary education at Kumasi secondary Technical school in Kumasi. He studied visual art as a course with specialization in Textiles, Graphic Design, Sculpture and General Knowledge in Art. By 2001 he had sailed through this course with flying colours. As a result, Samuel was admitted into Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in the year 2003 and completed in 2007 with a degree in Integrated Rural Art and Industry.

He did not study painting but to prove his versatility Samuel took painting as a hobby and is now, a full- time painter . Samuel creates abstracts, realistic and surrealistic works. His main medium of choice is canvas and favourite application is acrylic. ”I impose order on disorder, guided by proverbs wise sayings and dreams”, he said this in one of his exhibitions. He uses warm and cool colours wonderfully together to harness vim, vigour and vitality.

He has participated in several exhibitions both in Ghana and abroad Apart from the exhibitions, his works can be seen in galleries such as, Artist Alliance Gallery and most of the top Galleries in Ghana. In 2011 Prophask had an opportunity to hung some of his works in ‘Monument de la Renaissance Africaine, Galerie Kemboury’ and some other top galleries in Senegal. He deals with art collectors all over the world.

One must agree that Samuel is a gifted Artist; he started exhibiting that artistic skill right from infancy by scribbling on the ground, leaves and wall surfaces and now God has brought him to this far. His aspiration is to become one of the most wonderful painters the world has ever seen. He is creating his own world/land, named THE LAND OF COLOURS.
