Details

Reaching an arm behind her, a young mother steadies the child she carries on her back. She wears traditional batik attire, although she has migrated to the city. Emmanuel Atiemoh Yeboah poses a dilemma affecting Ghanaians as their country becomes more urbanized. Working with simplified line and exquisite silhouette, he creates a dramatic image of haunting beauty. "First and foremost, I assemble my working tools, after which I sketch images on the calico cloth," Yeboah explains. "With the sketches done, I sprinkle red and green oil paints on the calico cloth to give it a simple colorful background. I then cut out particular places I intend to replace with cloth, which are later glued together. Afterwards, I dry and frame my collage work."

This work of art comes in a frame of tweneboa wood.

"Special piece of art"

I just received The Lost Fishermen and I love it. This artwork arrived quickly to the United States and looks just like the photo online. It is beautiful up close and from a distance, and draws lots of attention from visitors. Definitely worth the purchase.
