Story Behind the Art:
George is motivated by recording the events of his time. As an animal rights activist and a committed vegetarian, wildlife plays an integral role in his work. Themes from developing countries also inspire Obeng's art, as well as comments on the cyclical problem of social confusion and irresolution. He is an observer of his time, struggling to represent the myriad unheard voices that surround him. Obeng has a workshop where he constantly trains apprentices; he also offers assistance to carvers. His works are displayed in the Official Residence of the Ghana High Commissioner to Nigeria, amongst others. His awards include second and third prizes in Sculpture, National Arts Contest 1979 and Sculptor of the Year from Leisure Arts and Entertainment, 1988. He is married to his sweetheart with whom he has four wonderful children.

I received these hand carved antelope sculptures today and they are magnificent. They came packaged with about 5 layers of material to protect them during shipping from Ghana, and they arrived unharmed. They are a tribute to the workmanship of the artists of Ghana, and a tribute to NOVICA who partners with these artists. I am proud to be the owner of these pieces, and will hand them down through the generations.Read More
