Setor studied science in secondary school after which he studied Aerospace engineering at the KNUST. After working for a while with a local airline, he realised that art and illustration was what he really wanted to pursue for the rest of his life. He proceeded to teach himself and made a very bold move by quitting his job to setup his own illustration studios, BZL Illustration studios. Among his clients are TIGO, Verna mineral water, MTN and GCB. He feels a sense of responsibly to show to the world that such incredible works of creativity can actually be done in this part of the world and that motivates him to do better and better.
