Musa's large works are usually executed in textile ink on printed textile, creatively blending the designs of the fabric with his own painting. In his art, which he claims should not be labelled as "African", Musa often appropriates classical Western masterpieces such as The Gleaners by Jean-François Millet or Olympia by Édouard Manet. Confronting and mixing these classical images with latter-day icons such as Vincent van Gogh, Josephine Baker, Che Guevara or Osama bin Laden, Musa creates a critical view on western art, politics and culture.
