Details

Poised on one foot, a graceful dancer whirls to a dance with the Damba tribe of northern Ghana. Dressed in a single cloth of batik, he wears beads and feathers on ankles and arms, and holds a traditional tool covered in kente cloth. Emmanuel Atiemoh Yeboah creates the exquisite scene in silhouette. "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 batik, which are later glued together. Afterwards, I dry and frame my collage work."

Mixed media, this work of art comes in a frame of tweneboa wood.
