Many people in this world have carved a niche for themselves due to the kind of talent they have.
In Ghana, many people have always been exhibiting their talent which has made them famous.
One Ghanaian, who is currently trending is Frederick Mwenviel Dibkuu, he is one of the country’s most influential artists.
Dibkuu is known for his unusual and highly-identifiable artworks.
But one thing to note about Dibkuu despite his artistic talent is that he is a police officer who works at the Criminal Data and Service Bureau Unit of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) at the police headquarters.
When artist Dibkuu puts pencil to paper, his works really come to life.
His beautiful pencil and charcoal drawings are achieved by a trick of the mind, using shading and angles to give them a life of their own and make them leap off the page.
"I want my drawings to put across the message that the eye can trick the mind and make you believe that there are dimensions that are not really there," said Dibkuu.
He is a native from Wa in the Upper West region.
Using his own hands and objects to make the drawings appear even more life-like, they appear to show two men using their strength to pull a pencil out of the artist’s hand, as well as a snake slithering away as its being drawn.
He is a believer in administering art to conceptualize possibilities and forecast future happenings.
"Drawing has always been my first preference and I use several mediums in this field. Being able to jump between the monochromes of graphite to the colored pencils is easy and gives variety to my work and interest to my portfolio," he said.
