ART REVIEW OF OLUMIDE ORESEGUN

Nothing captures the eyes like a glorious painting. Ever since I was a kid, it has always been my dream to be a world reknown painter. Due to situation of so many things and country issues, the plan has been on hold but definitely not derailed. I believe in having basic foundation knowledge, which refers to mastering the art of drawing.
The painting above was done by Oresegun Olumide, a 35-year-old man, who majored in Fine Art at the Yaba College of Technology, Lagos, Nigeria. He graduated with a distinction.

The use of water gives a translucent effect and he said “that is why it’s difficult for many people to do”. Drawing inspiration from his community, he creates pieces that reflect the lives of those around him. He has been featured on CNN and many other popular websites. I just can’t wait to get my hands on a paintbrush. (Hey! It’s okay if you haven’t achieved success in your 20s).
