This Alphabet Lion sign has been hand-painted on canvas by street-artist Babs Arts in his studio in Kumasi, Ghana.
Before the dawn of the digital age, street painters in Ghana made commercial signs to advertise a wide spectrum of products and professions – from movies, discotheques, cobblers, tailor shops, health and religious institutions to the new on-trend hairstyles. Babs Arts is one of the artists who once produced cinema posters and now paints shop signs to order, keeping this amazing art-form alive and kicking with audiences appreciating their artistic value across the globe.
Perfect for a kid's bedroom or play area, this charming piece is a rare find and a true original work of art!
