Meet Ghana's Most Renowned Artist

Born in 1978 in Kumasi, Ghana, Bernard Mensah showed an aptitude and love for painting from infancy. He has very strong family ties; the eldest of three children to a single mother – a market woman – who encouraged his quest to become a successful artist by enrolling him in art school and providing him with the materials he needed.

Kwesi Asante, Master Carver

Hey there, I want you to meet one of our master carvers, Kwesi Asante. He he is busy at work hand-carving a 5-head interlocking unity from a solid block of wood in Ghana. Pictured on the left, I even gave it a try and almost chopped off my fingers. It’s a marvel to watch him do it.
