beauty defined in art: REALISTIC OIL PAINTING

Updated: May 4, 2020

WATER is considered "An enemy of none" to the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria. 

With over 72k followers and counting on Instagram, his work is fast gaining momentum online.

Water is a recurring theme in his art because according to a popular adage in his native Yoruba language, "water has no enemy," Olumide told CNN. The use of water gives a translucent effect and, he says, is "why it's difficult for many people to do." Olumide pushes himself to create art that his community hasn't seen before and that is challenging for him. He became interested in art at the age of four and started professionally creating art in 2005, Olumide said.
