Yeboah Family - Yeb Silk Thread Art
The Yeboah Family
Hand-woven Thread Artists
Thread artworks are characterized & authenticated by looping threads, diamond-like highlights and vibrance radiating from the silk-threads which enhance the overall look, feel & value.
We are proud to feature Original hand-woven artworks by Ghanaian Artists from West Africa, the Yeboah Family, or “Yebs” for short. Emmanuel & Gloria and sons Enoch and Solomon are leading figures & early masters in the original hand-woven artworks & mixed media art movement known as Threadings or Silk-Thread art or simply, Thread art.
Their quality and signature look, comes from the Yeboah Family purely hand-woved finished piece. The silk thread makes any picture vibrant, colorful, bold and a stunning work of art.
The art piece is handmade in a tedious, but rewarding process by bonding two strands (thickness - 2mm) of looping silk thread of different shades and colors on the fibreboard or canvas until the entire canvas reveals the work of art. The result is a shimmering imagery stunning to the beholder.
