|Abstract: ||Traditional wall painting is an old art practiced in many different parts of the world. This art form has existed since pre-historic times according to (Skira, 1950) and (Kissick, 1993).
In Africa, cave paintings exist in many countries such as “Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Zimbabwe and South Africa”, (Wilcox, 1984).
Traditional wall painting mostly by women can be found in many parts of Africa including Ghana, Southern Africa and Nigeria. These paintings are done mostly to enhance the appearance of the buildings and also serve other purposes as well.
“Wall painting has been practiced in Northern Ghana for centuries after the collapse of the Songhai Empire,” (Ross and Cole, 1977).|
