Story Behind the Art:
During school summer holidays, Eric Darko would visit his brother, who taught him how to carve. With help from his family, especially his brother, Eric was able to open his own workshop in the town where he grew up. Sese, a common wood harvested in eastern Ghana, is his primary material. Masks and profiles comprise the majority of his art. His inspiration comes naturally, although sometimes he carves based on his customers' ideas.
