According to Eghan, the Guinness Book of Records confirmed Ace-Liam’s achievement in a message shared on Monday, May 13, 2024. She expressed gratitude to Ghanaians for their support and thanked God Almighty and family members.

Ace-Liam, who is just a year and 152 days old, began his record attempt from January 18 to January 20, 2024. His management and his mother, who is also a talented artist, are delighted by the recognition of his talent at such a young age.

Ace-Liam’s paintings use a technique which is done by manoeuvring acrylic paint across a canvas using the hands and body to create unique and abstract artworks.

Since his first artwork entitled “The Crawl”, he has completed another 20 paintings (and counting) and has also participated in his first group exhibition “The Soundout Premium Exhibition” at the Museum of Science and Technology in Ghana, where a total of 10 of his artworks created between the ages of 6 months to 1 year and 4 months were displayed and put up for sale.

Out of those 10 artworks, 9 were sold during the exhibition.

He beat Dante Lamb (USA, b. 16 November 1999 ) whose abstract paintings hang in the Monkey Love Dessert Bar & Gallery, St Simons Island, Georgia, USA and his first piece sold on 6 October 2003 for $85 (£50) when he was only 3 years old.
