Atta believes in working hard to develop his art; he says "The sky is the limit."
John Atta Mensah was born in 1963. He attended a Roman Catholic elementary school, after which he went to a prestigious art college from 1981 to 1984. During this time, and for some five years after he completed his education. Mensah elaborated a limited number of creative works to support himself, until a friend of his, also an artist, opened a new avenue for him.
Atta was introduced to a famed art gallery. From this point onwards, Atta established sound bases for himself personally and his practice - in other words, he has been painting seriously to date.
Atta believes in working hard to develop his art; he says "The sky is the limit." His paintings are inspired by everyday life, market scenes in particular, and possess a still, restful quality, infusing abundant appeal. His mastery of colors is harmony, making his works part of collections inside and outside of Ghana.
He has participated in exhibitions throughout Ghana.
