Among the artists is a one-year old boy, whose mother, Chantelle Eghan says she had to exhibit his abstract work as a requirement to break The Guinness World Record Title to become the youngest male artist.

The current holder was three years old and broke the record in 2003.

She said it was unfair for potential buyers to bargain with the artists or ask them to give them their work as a gift since the works take a lot creativity to produce.

Osafohene Asare said GEPA had supported AK Media to organise the exhibitions because it recognised Art work as a way of not only promoting it but also because of the huge potential it held for exports to generate revenue.

On his part, the Representative of the artists, Mr Amarkine Amarteifio said the art works on display could help to “reconsider, re-think, re-imagine and help to materialise” certain ideas for the wellbeing of society.
