Starting in about 1985 and continuing until just before the millennium, there existed a Golden Age of hand-painted imagination-driven movie posters in Ghana that stood their ground against globalization and computer-generated images. This was a time when market forces from abroad were minimal and these unique and exotic paintings were created solely for the local Ghanaian movie viewing audience. The best and brightest artists of a generation competed fiercely and directly in the public eye for this exciting new work, being careful to sign and date the great majority of these paintings.
