Mark Buku is a native of Accra, Ghana. Growing up in the city of Accra, one known for its style and artistic exuberance, has inspired him to capture the essence of his subjects in all the glory of its rich cultural heritage. With an extreme dedication to his craft, his style stems in part from a childhood that exerted an enormous influence on all his paintings. "I prefer to paint subjects that are representative of many facets of African life. Among my many favorites to paint are portraits and landscapes."

As a self taught artist, Mark's style is a blend of realism and impressionism. His artwork is nostalgic and uplifting. His art celebrates the traditional values of his culture.

Since receiving his B.A. in Art from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in 1992, Mark has always dreamt of pursuing his lifelong passion to draw and paint. Dedicating all his creative energy and time into what he loves to do, and that is to paint. Mark's philosophy is that everyone should have the opportunity to appreciate and afford beautiful art, it can be print or original. A true talent whose star continues to shine brighter and brighter.  "To be excellent, to dare to be great at what I love to do, and to make a substantial contribution to the lives of people who are touched by my art is my dream. I take pride and pleasure in capturing the essence of a particular subject and manifesting it on canvas, knowing that it will last as an eternal memory."

Mark has earned many awards, was a 4th place winner at the Seventh European Community Art showing organized by the British Consulate in Ghana. His exhibitions span from Canada, the United States and Europe.
