Eric Darko depicts an abstract figure engaged in deep thought. Its surprising contours and open spaces are fascinating when viewed from any angle. Carved from African sese wood, this statuette celebrates the power of the mind.
About the Artist: Born in the eastern Region of Ghana, Eric Darko graduated from the secondary technical school in 1999. During school vacations, he frequently visited his brother, for whom he ran errands. Darko took the opportunity to study carving from his brother, learning from his talents. Right after school he went straight into traditional woodcarving. Initially, business was slow, hindered both by the lack of financial resources and inability to procure quality materials. With help from his family, especially his brother, Darko's enterprise has since been growing tremendously. Darko is currently operating a workshop in the town where he grew up and where he has been carving seriously to date. Sese, a common wood harvested in the eastern Region of Ghana, is his primary material. Masks and profiles comprise the majority of his art. His inspiration comes naturally, although sometimes he carves based on his customers' ideas.
The Eric Darko Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Eric Darko in Ghana. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
