Design: Movie Posters from Ghana

I’ve posted a few of these before so if I’ve repeated any it’s for good reason. The following are hand painted movie posters from the country of Ghana. These beautiful works of art are employed as promotion for traveling, somewhat impromptu, film showings. Someone will load up a truck, a few movies, a few posters and head to the country to show them on a building wall or a big sheet. What can be said about these? They’re cool, they’re odd, the perspective is all wrong, the composition is childish and every star look vaguely asian or completely unrecognizable – all put together you get a perfect piece of folk art.
