A resounding note of tradition, the xylophone rings with delightful melodies under the guidance of a Hausa musician from northern Ghana. Emmanuel Attiamo Yeboah creates a patchwork of music and artistry to render a fascinating collage painting. “First and foremost, I assemble my working tools,” explains Yeboah. “I sketch images on the calico cloth. 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 batik or kente, which are later glued together. Afterwards, I dry and frame my collage work.” The kente cloth brings a sonorous accent to the otherwise monochromatic composition, rendering this portrait a fascinating addition to a refined setting.
