An 11-year old boy from Nigeria named Kareen Waris Olamilekan is gaining global praise for his magic with brushes. The kid is a great painter and makes his subjects come to life. He began drawing at the age of six. This young talent paints hyperrealistic portraits of people and it will make you look twice at it! Recently even met with France President Emmanuel Macron and made an impressive sketch of him.
His most famous artwork is called 'Daily Bread' which depicts a person with sweat and tears. "My family, we work hard before we put food in our mouths, before we eat. That’s what inspires me," he was quoted in an interview. Olamilekan humbly calls himself a 'bitty artist' and dreams to have his painting collections in a museum someday. Well, with the pace that he is growing and improving, we don't doubt he will make it come true. While he masters in portraits he also draws cartoons, comics and illustrations. He uses a pencil and his detailing on all the works is just mindblowing. DJ Switch, 10-Year-Old Girl From Ghana is Taking Internet by Storm, Watch Her Music Video.
