Meet #CreatePreneurAfrica –  Danny Arthurz, defining  Ghana’s shine in digital design!


Tell us what drives you? What is your true passion in life?

Well, I will say Itʼs God who drives me to work hard. I believe God is the master of all creativity and since he has deposited that creativity in me too, it propels me to work extra hard.

Well, my true passion in life is art and music. Music is good for the soul and for that matter, when I am painting with music I get a lot of inspiration and also the edge to work hard.

How did you find your passion and how old were you?

Growing up art has always been something that I really admire. But I wasnʼt so much into it because my educational background didnʼt give me that opportunity to learn at my early stage in life.

I became passionate about art when I met one guy who really inspired me to work extra- hard at my tertiary level. (Takoradi Technical University). I was 20 years of age when I really discovered my passion for art. This guy is a traditional painter and I  am a  graphic designer so I couldnʼt learn the traditional painting, so he started teaching me the fundamentals of digital painting.

Thatʼs when I re-realized how much am good in my field. I decided to visit online to learn more about Digital painting on YouTube.



What about your passion appeals to you the most?

Luck of financial support.

What drove you to make money from your passion?

I believe a lot can be done with social media when you look at the bright side of it. The positive feedback I had from social media- drove me to m-make money from my passion.

I realized a lot of people were interested in artwork and some of them encouraged me to work hard. And thatʼs when I realized I have to turn it into business. There are some people I talked to on Facebook that also helped me to get to where I am today and one person that I remember now is OSCAR Bimpong who is an inspirational speaker, This man took it upon himself and connected me to the right people.

When was the first time you were paid for your passion?

After my national service in Ghana, I started making money from it in the year 2015. And Ghanaians had an interest in my artwork after my artwork was recommended by some Ghanaian top celebrities and men of high esteem.

What kept you going when you thought of giving up?

I realized the people were interested in it and they were demanding for theirs too. At a point in time, some wanted to pay less for my artwork because they thought it was digital artwork. So I needed to brand myself well to penetrate through the market with my brand.

What motivated you to be even more successful?

Itʼs the determination behind my passion which is the drive to attention greater ambitions, And also to develop my talent to become a profession.


What do you have to say to all that doubted you?

Itʼs better not to be moved by negativity. Itʼs better to focus more on the positive life, than to lay emphasis on negativity.

What advise do you give to aspiring creatives who look up to you? 

Be passionate about what you do, work with determination. Stay focused, associate yourself with people who can help you and finally ……Develop your talent into a profession.
