Story Behind the Art:
Wilson Aboagye says of his art, 'I got interested in Ghanaian African carvings when I was a child, so after middle school I learned the trade through a man named Mr. Akoffour. Now I have my own workshop and am training three people. I carve different types of masks and many of them have a meaning. My products are unique and my target is to create more.'
