Waris Kareem Nigeria's 11-year-old artis



Inspired by Michelangelo, Kareem Waris captures the reality of life in his work.

At the age of 6, Kareem Waris began to draw. In just a few years, the young Nigerian developed such a talent for a style of art known as hyperrealism that world leaders tweeted about his extraordinary skills.

The young artist first came to light in a short BBC video a couple of years ago. The report featured the 11-year-old who is able to capture what he sees in daily life with the same accuracy as a photo. What makes his work so extraordinary is not only the incredible detail, but also the issues the young boy wants to highlight.
