At age eighty-three the Ghanaian Ataa Oko suddenly took up drawing. Since that date he has created over 2500 pictures. At first his drawings were of the fantasy coffins he created for his clients when he made his living as a carpenter. Later on he let his imagination lead him to depict the worlds of fantastic animals and of the spirits. The artwork of Oko along with that of Frédéric Bruly Bouabré from Dakar are currently being featured in an exhibit at the Collection de l’Art Brut in Lausanne, Switzerland.
