About Me

I work as painter, sign writer, illustrator, cartoonist and comedian.

My full name is Johnson "Jiidii" Dei-Kusi. I was born at Kofiasua, Dormaa-Ahenkro in Ghana in West Africa on May 5, 1979. During my childhood, I was really blessed with wealth talents and God-gifted abilities, including painting, drawing, comedy, writing, reading and playing soccer. I was born to painting, drawing and comedy. My father is a retired teacher and catechist of Kofiasua Presbyterian Church and mother is a peasant farmer. In 1987 I started school when I was eight at Bechem School for the Deaf until I completed my elementary school in August 1997. I always did very well in examinations.

As a teenager I would always draw pictures of nature and things on my books.

Recognising my interest in art, my father applied for an apprenticeship in fine art for me. I was to work with Nana Abrams, a highly experienced painter in Dormaa-Ahenkro in 1997. He remained me as apprentice for 6 months and I learned a lot but I still wanted to learn more.

After my apprenticeship my mother insisted that I did a 3-year trade certificate in metalwork and welding at the Technical Institute for the Deaf at Bechem but I was not interested in the fields, but wanted to do visual art. I did, however, manage to get private, part-time lessons from Mr. Bill, a Peace Corp (P.C.) volunteer from the United States. Bill normally trained pupils in paintings and drawings at school. My friendly nature and good sense of humour won me the respect of fellow students and I was asked to paint murals for the school in the hall.

In addition to my interest in art, I am also interested in comic acting and watch many comic films for inspiration, I also keep my friends amused with comic acting.

Unfortunately I could not make enough money to live on so I left for Accra, a capital city of Ghana and to stay with my uncle. During the stay, I drew picture of the Asamoa-Mensah family on the wall of house and when art work was displayed to public I got compliments from many people.

Then I met Joe Mens, who is physical challenged and joined the More Hope For Disabled Foundation as the director of Computer Services and as an artist. I also worked as private teacher, who instructs a deaf child in computers, mathematics, English language and other subjects on part-time basis.

I thank you for visiting this, and hope you are provided with inspiration.
