About Francis' Art History:
In his Own Words.
I'm Francis Sampson and the Father in the house. I'm 54 years old and all my life I have been attuned to African paintings and designing.
My wife is Emma. She has sold clothes for 20 years and helps critique my art.
I have two children: My son is Emmanuel and he recently completed a University Education. My daughter is Emma. She was named after her mother and is 27 years old. She is a certified teacher in Ghana.
My traditional name is Kobina Bonda. I was born in Cape Coast which is in the Central Region of Ghana. After High School, I went into Cape Coast Technical Institute where I obtained a degree in Paintings and Interior Design.
From there I went onto an apprenticeship to train myself more under one great artist called Joe. I worked with him for some years. Then, in 1988, I set up my own studio called Cameo Arts Studio. You'll see the signature "Cameo" on my paintings.
Through my works, I have done some paintings and works for some hotels, schools, offices, political parties and other institutes across Ghana. I have also participated in Art and Culture programs organized by the Ghana Tourism Industry.
About True African Art: In His Own Words
What I can say about True African Art and Gathinja is that they are very loyal and committed to African artists. They were prompt with our agreed payment and have cordial interactions with me and a friendly, personal presence that I can identify with, being an African. Gathinja and her team encouraged me through the painting process and gave me ideas on how to improve.
Honestly words can't explain how happy i am to be chosen among many artists to paint for True African Art. My family and I would like to express our deepest appreciation and thanks for your kindness and this opportunity. My dream is that my art will get international exposure and purchases.
