Was born in Sekondi, Ghana. He studied at Ghanatta College of Art and Design, Accra and subsequently moved to London, United Kingdom in 2017 where he lives and works. He has turned his life experiences into art.
As a budding artist, his contemporary fine art paintings encompass many different styles and genres. He prefers to weave strands of cubism, futurism and expressionism into his work. His creations interpret and portray socio-economic realities, political challenges and rich traditions. With inspiration from nature and keen observation of diverse cultural lifestyles spanning several human interactions. His works are figurative or abstract compositions with conversations on character, environment and identity. Spontaneity, extreme sensitivity and overflowing creativity characterize his pictorial approach makes his artistic work what it is today. His extraordinary works thus reflect the need for truth and content, for messages and questions, for liveliness and freedom. He then realized how important it was for him to help others find within themselves the resources to visually represent what they need to express. His personal works, semi-abstract paintings, fit into this perspective, a kind of gateway to the subconscious, each one being able to interpret shapes and lines in their own way, revealing by association of ideas a new story with each reading. Armsmac's artworks are influenced by some great artist including Leonardo Da Vinc, Michelangelo, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, John Crome, Wiz Kudowor, Owusu Ankomah, Ablade Glover, George Frederick Watts and Voka.

As an abstract artist, my work is a visual exploration of the intangible elements of the human experience. Through the use of color, texture, and form, I strive to create pieces that evoke emotion and provoke thought. My process is intuitive and spontaneous, allowing the materials and my unconscious mind to guide the evolution of each piece.
My work is a representation of my own personal journey, nature, characters and I hope that it will resonate with viewers on a deeper level. I believe that art has the power to connect people in a profound way, and my goal is to create pieces that inspire self-reflection and evoke a sense of missing wonder.
I am constantly seeking new ways to push the boundaries of my creative process and to challenge myself as an artist. Whether working with traditional mediums like acrylic, oil on canvas, mixed media, watercolour, digital painting. or incorporating found objects into my work, I am dedicated to exploring new techniques and perspectives.
Through my art, I hope to bring beauty into the world and to offer a window into my own unique perspective. I believe that art has the power to transform lives, and I am committed to creating work that will inspire, educate, and uplift those who encounter it."
