K. Baka from Ghana
is the artisan in the spotlight this week
Ghana's K. Baka specializes in paintings, craftwork, billboards, screen-printing and signboards. 'For my paintings, many a time I see them in dreams and visions before I actually paint them. I try to use inexpensive but high-quality material like calico, denim, military camp tents, and heavy curtain cloths. I use phone cards for the painting instead of brushes because it gives me the effect that I want.'
