Arinze Stanley: ‘Patience is the key to my art’

You might remember the young artist, Kareem Waris Olamilekan, who went viral when he was featured in a BBC Africa video in 2018. Well, this is the artist who inspired him.

Arinze Stanley Egbengwu, also from Nigeria, practices a type of art called hyper-realism, where the pictures look more like photographs than drawings.

He shows BBC Africa’s What’s New? what it takes to create such a realistic-looking piece of art.
