Story Behind the Art:
George Obeng is motivated to carve by one principal theme: 'Recording the events' of his time. He is an observer of his time, struggling to represent the myriad unheard voices that surround him. But for his stalwart determination, Obeng would not be the carver he is today. He had been ordered by an elder relative to take up typesetting and printing. However, he defied his family and studied sculpture, eventually graduating from the University College of Art. As an apprentice for Saka Acquaye, a renowned sculptor, he was able to participate in exhibitions in Ghana, many other African countries, and abroad. His works are displayed in the Official Residence of the Ghana High Commissioner to Nigeria, amongst others. He is married to his sweetheart with whom he has four wonderful children.
