Artisan Information

Abdul Razak

Shop all Abdul Razak products

I am a hardworking, humble and truthful person. My type work is handicrafts. I was born into an artisan family on November 15, 1988 in Accra.

My father, Abdul Karim Star, is a Novica-featured artisan and some of my cousins work together in the same workshop. My father introduced me to crafts.

"I started with sandpapering at the age of ten when I returned from school. After I mastered the skill of sandpapering, I moved on to learn how to cut the brass and aluminum used to adorn the mask. I also was trained in painting masks as well as applying beads to them. The fixing of the beads happens to be a difficult part, but the final outcome of the artwork and their attractive, beautiful nature are what make me want to affix the beads over and over again.

"When I completed senior high school, I decided to continue in this field. I worked together with my father for a while before he agreed to let me be on my own. I work in his workshop but can sell my designs myself. I therefore have to come up with my own style.

"What attracts me most about my art is creating beaded designs, because it is believed that beads are very attractive and shining to drive attention to the work.

"My hope and dream is to become a renowned artist of my time."

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
