When you look at these paintings of Enam Bosokah, they seem to be made with the camera. The skills of this artist are amazing!
He was born in Ghana and has 6 siblings. His father and one of the younger brothers also love painting. But his art is unmatchable. After finishing his course on arts in university, he wanted to draw but had no money to get the supplies.
All he had was paper and pen. Why not use them? All his paintings are done in that fashion. The artist himself says:
“There is no name for the style of drawing I do. There are a lot of lines and minute squares. I have not named my style as I will always change it, I didn't want to keep to one confinement. It's a freestyle.”
Every painting he creates takes up to 4 days to finish. You can see the pen strokes and lines in every painting, but at the same time you get the feeling – it’s an amazing quality photo!
Even at the start if his career, the paintings get virally spread on the Internet, and the prices for portraits are high. One may cost up to 500 US dollars. His talent is amazing hopefully the young man would gain worldwide fame and acknowledgment for what he does.
