Introduction to the world of Hyper-realism pencil art. Drawing with graphite and charcoal pencils.
Born in Lagos, Nigeria, and graduated from Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, with a B.Sc in Mathematics; Michael discovered his love for drawing from an early age.
Michael had always had an innate desire to create realistic works. But he didn’t know about Hyperrealism art until he was fifteen and almost finishing high school. After discovering this style of art through a friend, Michael gradually taught himself to master working with pencils and papers to create the type of art he now draws.
He works with charcoal and graphite because it fascinates him how illusions of colors could be represented by a simple monochrome of black and whites. Michael says life could be simple if it were just in black and white.
Michael drives at creating art that tells emotional and thought evoking stories to his viewers. His artwork is mostly targeted at describing cultural, moral, and biblical values.
