Guinness World Records has recognized a toddler from Ghana as the world's youngest artist. Ace-Liam Nana Sam Ankrah was one year and 152 days old when he entered the record books. His mother Chantelle said it was obvious her son had artistic talent when he was six months old. She explained how he began painting. She said she gave Ace-Liam a canvas and some paint. He had an affinity for colour as he crawled over the canvas.

Ace-Liam is attracting attention across the art world. His work was shown at Ghana's Museum of Science. He sold nine of the 10 pieces on show. Ghana's first lady asked him for a painting. Chantelle said her son is creating interest with his artistic flair. She said he has lit a "conversation about art appreciation". She added: "His abstract paintings are inspired by the world around him." Guinness said Ace-Liam "has an exciting career ahead of him".
