Kareem Waris Olamilekan is only 11 years old, but he has already been accepted to an art academy where he studies together with adult students. And there is nothing surprising about that. He draws amazing portraits that really deserve to be shown in the best galleries in the world.
We at Apegeo were shocked when we saw Kareem’s work and we’re excited to tell you about this amazing kid.
Kareem was born in Nigeria into a regular family. He started drawing at the age of 6 and since then it has been his favorite thing. When Kareem was 8 years old, his family moved into a new house. Near his house, the boy saw a student of Ayowole Art Vocational Academy that was drawing. This is when the young artist realized that he had to enter this academy too.
