Oresegun Olumide

Oresegun Olumide is a Nigerian hyper-realistic artist. The hyperrealism created in the oil paintings makes his work seem so lifelike that it is hard to believe they aren’t. He started drawing at the age of 4 and hasn’t stopped since then. He received some media attention in Nigeria and beyond after he posted some of his oil on canvas paintings on Facebook. He graduated with distinction in Fine Arts from Yaba College of Technology, Lagos. He cites Pablo Picasso and Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni as his role models. Olumide currently owns an art studio in Ikorodu where he showcases his works and exhibitions.
