Story behind the art:

My work is very unique because I craft African masks of extremely high quality. Moreover, I have innovated some creativity into my products with local available resources I took hold of, such as calabash and cowries.I was born in Accra Newtown on January 2, 1976. When I a young schoolboy, becoming a carver was not one of my objectives. However as time went on, the selling of carved goods tempted me to start carving, and I continued learning until I became an accomplished carver.
I started as an apprentice for Mr. Abdul Karim Star Boy in the late 1980s. Although I was still a schoolboy, I managed to combine the learning of carving with my schooling. I found no hindrances, and this went on a long way in inspiring me, as the clock ticks on.My materials are mostly wood, paint, polish, sea sand, brass and aluminum. My processes involved carving, sandpapering, polishing, painting, plating and finishing.There are a lot of factors that motivate me but the significant one was to depict the uniqueness of African history for our younger generations.Although life is not as easy, with the almighty Allah, I've overcome almost all the challenges. I have trained a lot of carvers who are still carving and making ends meet for their families.I have a big family with seven children, and they are living in a happy environment.
