INCREDIBLE NIGERIAN SKETCH ARTISTE, KEVIN OKAFOR, BECOMES AN INTERNATIONAL SENSATION

Kelvin Okafor is a 27-year-old sketch artiste who uses only pencils and a piece of paper to create amazing portraits and he is currently making waves across the world.

Okafor, who is a graduate of Fine Art, Middlesex University,  has been producing pictures with pencils since he was a teenager who was too poor to leave his house to socialise. Instead of drinking and clubbing, Ofakor stayed at home in Tottenham, North London, seeking solace in drawing. Okafor says each work takes him up to 100hours to complete.

An exhibition of his work opened at London’s Science Museum and already some of his portraits are changing hands for £10,000 apiece. This week, a portrait he drew of King Hussein of Jordan is to be presented to the late monarch’s widow, Queen Noor. See more of his amazing works after the cut...
