HYPERREALISM

For those of you not familiar with the term Hyper-Realism.  It is the art form of creating illusions through drawings, paintings or sculptures that mirror the reality of high-resolution photography by creating another element to life

Below are two such artists that stand out in their ability to foster inner connectedness to life through art.

Kareem Waris Olamilekan

In a world where youth is increasingly seen as a metaphor for hopelessness and  social disenfranchisement, one young man chooses  not to wear this corrosive metaphor with his ability to change such perceptions.

 

Eleven year old Kareem Waris Olamilekan is the new King in the world of Hyperrealistic Art that captures with incredible accuracy real life images of people through using pencil based drawings that depict what a contemplative expression caught in the moment looks like.

A pupil of the Ayowole Academy of Art, where his talent has been nurtured.  Kareem has secured his place among the most outstanding Hyperrealistic artists of the twenty first century, such as Arinze Stanley and Olumide Oresegun.  Exhibitions of his work can now be seen worldwide as the globe wakes up to the young man with a supernatural talent.

Arinze Stanley Egbengwu

Putting the intensity of his spirit into each of his hyperrealistic drawings, which can take anything from 200 to 300 hours to complete.  Arinze Stanley Egbengwu with little formal training, stands out in his capacity to create such masterpieces with charcoal and graphite pencils and various organic techniques.  Self-taught Arinze Stanley has stunned the world of art with his effortless genius for transferring ebullient life through his subjects to paper.

The fact that each work of art is painstakingly shaped to recreate the bodies and faces of the people he connects with on a daily basis. Their joy, contemplation, victories and optimism is a true testament to one man's ability to embrace everything real about his artistic experiences in relation to his culture.

Arinze Stanley adds his name to a long line of contemporary Hyperrealists who are rebuilding the true concept of what art truly represents when nurtured in its purest form to reflect life
