African is unquestionably one of the richest continents in natural resources and more. The beauty of the continent is definitely a reflection of the people and 11-year-old Kareem Waris Olamilekan is sharing that beauty with the world through his genius on canvas.
Self-taught, this young genius learned his craft by watching others. “I found an artist in our new house. So, I saw the apprentice of @ayowole art drawing still life and I spoke with one of them who asked if I could draw and I told him yes,” Olamilekan said in a recent interview. “Later that day, the already registered students started drawing a “composition of kettle and headphones…so I stood at a corner and participated with them.”
Olamilekan is learning to master hyperrealism painting pen drawings, pencil drawings, wall art and other forms of art in order to hopefully one day become, “a great artist.”
