Story Behind the Art:
Unhappy with his life, Emmanuel Atiemoh Yeboah left a government job in Ghana for a sign-writing company in Nigeria. He polished his artistic skills in their art department, then worked with a company that exported African arts and crafts. "We toured the whole of Nigeria buying goods. It was on one of these tours that I came across this type of artwork and fell in love with it. I suggested to the owner of the company that I make some for export. We bought one of the works, and I modified it and in the process created something new and unique." Yeboah returned to Ghana in 1993 to work as an artist. Today, he is a full-time broadcaster and part-time artist who derives motifs from social, cultural and historic events.
