Why It's on The Cornrow
Before there was Nollywood, there was Ghanaian and Nigerian Movie poster art. . Starting in the 1980s with the advent of mobile-cinemas in west Africa showing bootleg screenings of Hollywood films, these movie-clubs would hire skilled artists to help with advertising.
Before access to digital printing, artists would re-create the movie posters. Some, were direct recreations of the original artwork, but other times, artists took artistic licence and re-imagined scenes from the movies or just brazenly created entirely new storylines...
Like Barber Shop Art, they are now collectors items and very hard to come by. Our Barbershop art is produced in Ghana by the same team who develop our Asafo Flags.
