Snapshots of Accra: Centre for National Arts and Culture

Ramon Brimon is a businessman at the Centre for National Arts and Culture in Accra, Ghana. The Centre is the city's largest craft market. He has crafters working for him creating curios. Ramon Brimon and his brothers including Kingwise Baba, a Rastafarian, and Chas Kofi, work in an arts and crafts business that started in Burkina Faso 80 years ago. Their grandfather was an art collector and their father started a business trading in arts and culture. Their father came from Burkina Faso, but their mother is Ghanaian. They don’t just sell in Ghana, but also in Burkina Faso, Togo, Mali Cote D’Ivorie and Senegal. They sell to collectors in many parts of the World.

One of those buyers was the King of Morocco who came to the market at the end of 2017. He was a teammate of a Ghanaian soccer player and so came to visit. According to Ramon, he travelled in a convoy of 22 to 25 trucks and bought arts and crafts from a number of countries. He purchased original bronze work form Burkina Faso. Ramon got an invitation to where the King was staying to present arts and crafts.
