UK-based artist Kelvin Okafor uses charcoal and graphite pencil to take photo-realism to a new level. His work is so amazing some haters have accused him of being a fake. The truth is he is both a self-taught artist and a graduate of one of the finest art schools in the UK. His work is eye-poppingly, jaw-droppingly, breathtakingly exquisite.
It is easy to run out of superlatives when describing the work of a genius. Check it out for yourself and be prepared to be amazed.
