"Abstract art is where my interest lies and I have now taken it on as my full time job."
"I am Prince Asher, born in Ghana on February 5, 1977. After obtaining a diploma in painting, I began to practice on my own. Abstract art is where my interest lies and I have now taken it on as my full time job. I started selling my art in 1993, during my second year in art college. I had my first exhibition in 1993 at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Accra. The response was good, and I've had my works exhibited at other Accra galleries. I have been painting now for seven years. I've had three solo exhibitions and have participated in four group exhibitions."
