Kobina's story

Kobina is an artisan from Ghana who specializes in African masks. He would like to invest in a purchase of materials, including wood, beads, brass, aluminum plate, sandpaper, brushes, nails and wood glue.

Kobina has been selling through NOVICA since 2012. This is his story:

"My father painted, and I also have a flair for drawing and painting. This makes designing masks something that comes naturally to me. What I did to hone my skills was to visit art workshops where I could observe artisans. I was so eager to learn more that I got a raw mask and started to make designs and paint it with acrylics. The outcome was very good, and that is how I started in this art form."

"What else can I say other than thank you for helping my business grow over the years. God bless you all."
