Enoch Yaw Mensah, born at the Nkonya Guan, a traditional area in the upper part of Volta Region of Ghana, experienced his formative years that meant many lessons learnt in the textile and carving studio, which belonged to his Father. This experience gave Yaw an understandung of texture and African symbols and he would as a young child express himself on any available medium including sand Real work produced included charcoal from burnt wood, chalk dried cassava (kokonte), various colours of clay and dyes derived from tree banks.

Yaw moved to the big city, Accra when he completed Senior Secondary School to further his education. He went to the Teragogen School of Art where he studied graphics and then moved to Ghanatta College to study fine art. Again, his apprentiship' under several experienced artists which included Lawrence Okoe, K. Mante, Nathaniel Quarshie and Jakob Bennet offered him the opportunity and privilege to 'grow' his work.
