PRESIDENTIAL SERIES.

DESCRIPTION OF ARTWORK

SINCE 1957, GHANA HAS BEEN RUN BY 12 DIFFERENT PRESIDENTS. STARTING OFF WITH WITH DR. H. C. KWAME NKRUMAH, WHO DIDNT ONLY SET A STANDARD IN GHANA BUT ALSO OUTSIDE IT’S BORDERS, AS HE PAVED THE WAY FOR MANY OTHER AFRICAN COUNTRIES TO FOLLOW.

AFTER HIM THERE HAVE BEEN OTHER LEADERS, WHO HAVE BEEN VERY SIGNIFICANT IN GHANA’S ‘UPBRINGING’-JERRY JOHN RAWLINGS, WHO LED THE FIRST COUP IN GHANA, WHICH WAS A MAJOR TURNING POINT IN THE COUNTRY’S HISTORY.

HOWEVER I FEEL OUR PRESIDENTS ARENT HONORED ENOUGH, ITS EITHER YOU’VE HEARD ABOUT THEM OR NOT. I REALLY DON’T BLAME OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM ENTIRELY FOR THIS, BECAUSE PEOPLE CAN NOT BE SPOON FED WITH THIS KIND OF INFORMATION ALL THE TIME. BUT I DO FEEL THAT THIS KIND OF INFORMATION COULD BE ‘STUMBLED UPON’ IF IT WAS ACTUALLY MADE NOTICEABLE IN THE COUNTRY. THERE ARE ONLY A FEW MEMORIALS FOR THESE VETERANS, AND THAT COULD BE THE REASON WHY PEOPLE KNOW VERY LITTLE OR KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THESE PEOPLE.

THAT IS WHY I CAME UP WITH THE PRESIDENTIAL SERIES, TO SHED SOME LIGHT ON THESE VETERANS. THIS WORK IS NOT GOING TO BE IN JUST ONE LOCATION BUT IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT SETTINGS, FROM CITIES TO VILLAGES, ON THE STREET AND IN BUILDINGS.
