Art of Lagos: Toni Kuyinu’s True-To-Life Pencil Sketches


My friend Toni Kuyinu is a one-man art exhibition waiting to happen. Until quite recently, all I knew of his activities was that he had been traversing the Third Mainland Bridge most weekdays (no doubt working hard to make the promotion cut at his white-collar job) and sampling oldish songs on the weekends for his atypical instrumentals. But apparently, the art head has also taken up drawing, creating true-to-life pencil sketches of his friends and public figures such as music star Wizkid and South Sudanese model Alek Wek from photos in his spare time. Check out the amazing detail in Toni’s work below and follow him on Instagram.



Wow! Awesome stuff. he's super talented.
