"I have always had a talent for painting and drawing..."
"My name is William Mawuenyega Agbanavor Jr. I was born on August 15, 1977 to Mr. William Agbanavor Sr, an horologist, and Miss Naomi Addy, a trader.
"I have always had a talent for painting and drawing, so before entering university, I began to work in advertising. I worked on a contract basis and later left to study graphic design. I had just returned from a Panafest exhibition in Cape Coast when I got my results.
"Also, at school I participated in an artist trade fair held by my faculty. In 2001, I participated again in the Panafest, held in Cape Coast, and I have certificates of participation from all of my exhibitions.
"My work can be seen in several galleries throughout Ghana."
