“I remember how I used to draw automobiles on my books with pencil and I was always the best at art in class, I even graduated as the best in my set in secondary school.

“Although I did a lot of drawing, I was not yet exposed to the rudiment of art. So after my secondary school, while waiting for admission to study my dream course (Fine Art), I discovered amazing artists and artworks through Google.”

“I was blown away the first day I saw it and it made me realize I had a long way to go. I found many of them, including Arinze Stanley and started following them on social media.”

“Since then, I was challenged to do same, so I started practicing every other day, even though I didn’t have proper materials, I improvised. It took me two years before I was finally able to create my first hyper-realistic work.”

“My first hyper-realistic work was a self-portrait which I titled, “Good News.” I immediately started another one because I discovered a lot while doing the first one and I created another work titled, “Arrival of Adulthood” and it was better than the first.”

“The piece drew attention on social media and I got featured on an art page on Instagram.”
