"if you went to the cinema in '80s or '90s ghana, you would have seen incredible hand-drawn movie posters...

<div class="articletext"]hand-drawn movie posters</b> for old action/martial arts</b> and horror films</b>. as the story goes, there was a boom of mobile cinemas in ghana in the '80s and '90s</b> (where exhibitors 'screened' films from vhs tapes), and these cinemas required posters to promote them. so they recruited the finest local artists</b> to knock something out on canvas."
