The GOWA Awards 2020 bestowed the honor of Ghana’s Most Outstanding Woman in Innovation onto Ghana’s leading female painter/muralist, Anita-Pearl Ankor who so happened to put her science educational certificate aside to cash out from her passion as a muralist.
Her passion of what she does was influenced by her childhood quest to scribble on the wall, draw on furniture and do diagrams on blackboards. For now, it has nothing to do with her degree in Agriculture Science Post Harvest.
Anita Pearl, mostly labeled/known as “The Female Painter” has generated fabulous piece of arts within the country and left her iconic marks on the busy streets of Ghana’s capital city Accra of which includes the current murals (arts) seen around the Tetteh Quarshie and Ako Adjei interchange.
