Story Behind the Art:
Wilson Aboagye is a young Ghanaian man. Born on 21st March 1963 in Aburi. I attended Anglican Primary School in 1972 and Anglican Middle School in 1979. I got interested in Ghanaian African carvings when I was a Child, so after middle school I learnt the trade through a man in Aburi called Mr. Akoffour. Now I have my own shop in Aburi and have three people that are under me that am training, I carve different type of masks and any of them have a meaning. I attended a trade fair in year 2003. My products are unique but cheap and my target is to sell more.
