    Story Behind the Art:

    Born in the eastern Region of Ghana, Eric Darko graduatedfrom the secondary technical school in 1999. During schoolvacations, he frequently visited his brother, for whom he ranerrands. Darko took the opportunity to study carving from hisbrother, learning from his talents. Right after school he wentstraight into traditional woodcarving. Initially, business wasslow, hindered both by the lack of financial resources andinability to procure quality materials. With help from his family,especially his brother, Darko's enterprise has since been growingtremendously. Darko is currently operating a workshop in the townwhere he grew up and where he has been carving seriously to date.Sese, a common wood harvested in the eastern Region of Ghana, ishis primary material. Masks and profiles comprise the majority ofhis art. His inspiration comes naturally, although sometimes hecarves based on his customers' ideas.
