Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A Senegalese artist, Bou Bou, has gone viral as he employed a little girl's palms to create an amazing one-of-a-kind piece.
During the painting session, the girl would dip her palms into the colour palette and the artist would do the same thing.
To achieve a creative pattern, the artist would slap at the palms of the girl then apply it on the canvas.
He did this repeatedly until he achieved the portrait he set out on. What makes his work amazing was not only that he carried them out without a brush, but that he painted everything upside down.
The clip has been watched on Twitter over two million times as people are asking how he went about making such beautiful work with his hands.
Watch the video below:
A Twitter user asked him to reveal his source of strength, seeing that his skillfulness is not an everyday thing.
Below are some of the comments the post got:
"How do you do this with just handprints, every time you just keep raising the bar high man ... it's flawless absolutely beautiful man ..."
"Challenge accepted, oh Beautiful, wise great one."
"Raw! I love your work passionately."
"This dudes painting vids never disappoint. Never."
"And the little girl was just busy painting her hands."
"You are out of this World. You are doing Incredible stuff. Even Leonardo Da Vinci will be envious!!!"
