PHOTOS: Nigerian artist Oresegun Olumide breaks the internet with his realistic paintings




Lagos-born Nigerian artist Oresegun Olumide’s hyper realistic paintings have gone viral on the internet.
His paintings look so real that many people think they are digital pictures. 
Oresegun graduated from Yaba College of Technology, Lagos, with a distinction.
The 35-year-old majored in Fine Art.
He became interested in art at the age of four and started professionally creating art in 2005, Olumide said.
Drawing inspiration from his community, he is creating pieces that reflect the lives of those around him.
His work, he says, is “a gradual process,” taking around two to three weeks to create individual pieces.
“And depending on the intricacy I want to achieve, it can take a couple of months,” he added.
