11-Years Old Nigerian Artist Stuns the World with his Hyper-realist Artworks


Kareem Waris Olamilekan aka ‘Waspa’ Based in Lagos is a young, up-and-coming Nigerian artist that specialized in hyperrealism. He started drawing at the age of six and says he is most inspired by Michelangelo and fellow Nigerian portrait artist, Arinze Stanley Egbengwu.

Waspa gained international recognition after drawing a hyperrealistic portrait for French President Emmanuel Macron in just two hours. The President was stunned by the results, sharing his admiration on Twitter. Olamilekan currently attends the local Ayowole Academy of Art, created by graduate art student Adeniyi Adewole. It will be exciting to watch this young talent develop and grow.
