Ace Liam, the one-year-old Ghanaian toddler, has secured the Guinness World Record (GWR) for the youngest male artist.


Chantelle Eghan, Liam’s mother, who is also an artist, took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce her son’s feat.

“It’s official!!! @ace_liam_paints my 1 year old son is officially the Guinness world record holder as the YOUNGEST MALE ARTIST in the world. He achieved this feat at the age of 1 year 152 days old,” she wrote.

“Many thanks to everyone who supported us on this journey, your prayers and support brought us this far. The journey was not easy but it was definitely worth it!!!”


GWR also lauded Liam’s artistic prowess, adding that he used his hands and body to manipulate acrylic paint across canvases.

“The youngest artist (male) is Ace-Liam Nana Sam Ankrah (Ghana, b. 16 July 2022), who was 1 year and 152 days old, as verified in Accra, Ghana, on 15 December 2023,” it wrote.

“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.”

Dante Lamb was the previous record holder. The American achieved the feat in 2003 at the age of three.
