Story Behind the Art:
'My carving is motivated by this: I want to record the events of my time,' says Ghana's George Obeng. As an animal rights activist and a committed vegetarian, wildlife plays an integral role in his work. He depicts themes from developing countries as well as comments on the cyclical problem of social confusion and irresolution. He is an observer, struggling to represent the myriad unheard voices that surround him.
