Africa youngest HYPER-REALISM Artist

Olamilekan has been drawing since the age of 6, and the main subject of his hyperrealistic works is usually portraits, although he sometimes goes beyond them, too. “I draw my friends. I draw cartoons, comics. I draw illustrations from textbooks and newspapers,” Olamilekan told BBC. “I draw hyperrealistic pencil works.”

Every drawing that Kareen creates stuns us with the details that are not something very common for an 11-year-old. Kareen says that his inspiration comes from everything that’s happening around him, especially his family, but also he reflects a lot on two of his artistic idols – Nigerian artist Arinze Stanley, who also specializes in hyperrealism, and Italian Renaissance master Michelangelo.

Kazeem Waris, Nigeria’s youngest hyper-realism artist recently came to prominence after drawing a portrait of the French President, Emmanuel Macron in 2 hours, and presenting it to Macron who was on a 2-day visit to Nigeria. The eleven-year-old has been drawing since he was seven-years-old and says his artwork is inspired by people and the environment
