Featured Review on African Paintings
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.
"Paintings should not be seen solely as art work, but also as mirrors that reflect everyday life."

Framed Oil Painting on Cotton and Batik Cloth from Ghana, "The Lost Fishermen"
Three colorfully-clad fishermen paddle hard for home in this appealing artwork from Emmanuel Atiemoh Yeboah in Ghana. He crafts the piece using cotton fabric and scraps of batik cloth, painted with oil colors and ink. The piece is presented in a ceiba wood frame ready for hanging. The fishermen's boat bears the motto, 'Sea Never Dry' which "stems from the belief that people have an immense capacity for creativity," explains the artist.
Abstract images invite interpretation in this original composition by Ghana's Randy Abeka Abbam. "I wanted to show how our lives are, and the difficulties that we go through," explains the artist. "The colors depict the problems that we go through in our lives."
Arrives with a tweneboah wood frame.
Signed Mixed Media Painting of a Deer in Blue from Ghana, "Deer Blue"
Featuring a face, horns, and legs with colorful dotted designs, an African deer features a body made of cotton with traditional printed motifs in blue and black. Ghanaian artist K. Baka creates this mixed media composition for a simple, yet striking addition to your home. This painting arrives in a red mat board passe-partout.
'Market Day in Green II'
Thirteen women carry baskets on their heads as they make their way to the market. "Thursdays are market day in Koforidua, in the Eastern Region of Ghana," says K. Baka of his inspiration. He works with acrylics on card stock to share an aspect of tradition in a unique and modern style. Includes card paper matting.
