It can take years for some artists to hone their artistic skills, especially when learning to master a refined skill such as a hyperrealistic art. But an 11-year-old boy by the name of Kareem Waris Olamilekan seems to have been born with a gift that is truly mind-blowing. Kareem is also known as Waspa, and he's from Lagos, Nigeria. But his paintings are so life-like that they're garnering a lot of attention from all over the world. This incredible child calls himself a "bitty artist" who would like to see his artwork displayed in a museum in the future. Meanwhile, he's learning how to fine-tune his artistic skill at Ayowole Academy of Arts and his hyperrealistic pencil work will truly blow you away.
This artistic skill isn't new. Kareem has been drawing since he was six years old, and you'll find that the subjects he uses to draw are often portraits of people. He also likes to draw portraits of his friends as well.
