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 for 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.
At the GOWA Awards, a humanitarian initiative to honor and award women involved in
social change, organized by ASKOF Productions, Anita-Pearl Ankor battled the said
category ‘Most Outstanding Woman in Innovation” out with other prominent Ghanaian
women and bagged it away for her unbeatable outstanding works for social change.
Congratulations to Ghana’s best female painter/muralist on her esteemed honor as the
country’s “Most Outstanding Woman in Innovation” as presented by GOWA Awards with
supports from ASKOF Productions.
