The 12-year-old artist, who started drawing two years ago, revealed in an interview that he started with drawing of plastic bottles, and that he could now sketch and draw human being or object such that the artwork would resemble the individual or object.

Having seen the talent in him, his parents decided to enroll him for art apprenticeship in Isheri area of Magodo, Lagos under Mr. Adekunle Folarin, who then put him through the basic of drawings.

He said further in an interview with our correspondent that his intention is to have a workshop where people could visit, select some of his art works for personal, office or industrial use.

He explained that he has taken the art of drawings to a remarkable level, and he has tested his ability by drawing some Nigerian music artistes such as Davido, Adekunle Gold, and one of the most sought-after comedians in the country, Shaggy.

He added that he derived pleasure in drawings, and that each time he got home from school, instead of playing games with neighbours or friends, he would be busy drawing objects.


He revealed that he hoped to take his artistic talent beyond Nigeria in the nearest future, and that he planned to own a studio where some of his works would be displayed and lovers of artwork would easily make purchases.

Kehinde Paul intends to write the next common entrance examination to seek admission into a public secondary school.
