Story Behind the Art:
Ghanaian artist Frank Obiri-Ntow has exhibited his work in the United States and in Germany. 'I used to assist the late Mr. Agya Osei at his workshop and I used to ask him so many questions! His answer was always the same, 'Just learn ? this is a good skill to have. I now have apprentices under my care. I think I have a sense of intuition with this art, and whenever it comes, I take advantage of it and put it to work.'
