To be born with the artistic flair to draw or paint is a unique gift bequeathed on few people on earth. In Oprah Winfrey’s words, “My Professor said I couldn’t even draw a straight line with a ruler.” Most artist discover their talent at a young age and work through the systems to share their talent with their community and the world.
Meet Joseph Forson, a Cape Coast-based artist. As a young boy, he discovered his desire for drawing and gradually gained interest in painting. As a child, he took great interest and pride in running artistic errands like t-shirt design and printing, wall murals in his neighborhood and drawings for his family and friends.
