Story Behind the Art:
'I always knew I wanted to paint, but wasn't sure I could make a living out of it, so I looked into other fields too,' recalls Abdul Aziz Mohamadu. 'I observed master carver Musa at his workshop for a time, then I picked up a log and started carving out a mask as I had observed him do. This surprised Musa and he was willing to help me perfect the skill. I developed a love for this art, and that's how I eventually became a master carver too!'
