Born on the 24th day of December 1978. Bernard Mensah stared schooling at the tender age of 6 (six) at the fanchenebra metropolitan authority primary and junior secondary school in Kumasi in Ashanti region of Ghana.
After elementary education I proceeded to the college of art and industry also in Kumasi where I acquire indebt knowledge of artistic designs that aided me to become what I want to be a prominent painter.
My family has been the very epitome of my life. Being the eldest of 3 children, my single mother a trader has very encouraging in my quest for this feat by providing me with all things I needed materially. I enjoy my family very much because they are my inspiration and I believe that God through his mercy will grant my mother more years to enjoy the fruit of her labour
. Painting has been with me from my infancy. I used to create images through my own imagination when I was a child. Creativity is a form of religion that I believe, I create to portray how I see nature and to exhibit the artistic quality in me, to say it all "I do not paint for money".
Painting using canvas needs a whole lot of concentration and a free mind, and being a painter who portrays nature you to be harmonious with natural environment and a peaceful serenity. What inspires me most is the feeling that fills me after my quiet time, which is when I take some time off to explore positive ways of enlightening my paintings. I translate illusion into reality, to the admiration of mankind in the form of painting.
I use canvas and acrylic paint in all my works I like working with acrylic because it suits my type of painting. I like innovations in my works; it gives me different opinions every time and my sense of coloring also add some genuine to the painting. I try to portray "what is in me and being me is what I create."
