Martins Lawrence Akande’s Amazing Hyper Realistic Pencil Artwork by obidevine(m): 3:26am On Jan 06, 2017
Nigerian hyper realistic painter Oresegun Olumide’s artwork recently made waves on social media. The oil paintings depict reality that many people could be deceived into thinking they are digital photographs. Another Nigerian artist, Martins Lawrence Akande has also been making waves with his remarkable realistic pencil drawings. 

Nigerian artists are stealing the limelight and putting the country and continent’s art on the global map with their remarkable talent and creativity.

The limelight is shining brightly on artist Martins Lawrence Akande, who specialises in hyper-realistic pencil artwork. The talented artist and accountant is a graduate of Yaba College of Technology, Ahmadu Bello University, in Zaira, Nigeria and his work has been featured in, “Oxford UK, Artifact NY, World Art Dubai, Paris, Art UpClose”.

Some of Akande’s artwork (featured on Art UpClose) fetch as much as U.S.$10,000 per portrait (charcoal pencil on paper).

The artwork is quite striking and in his pencil drawings, Akande pays much attention to the subtle details. On social media (Instagram) and on his blog, the artist posts pictures of his work in progress, in the ‎various stages of drawing, which gives an idea of the process of drawing ‎

His artwork has been described as amazing, breath-taking, and beautiful, amongst other positive reviews.



Have a look at some of Akande’s drawings.‎
