A very talented young man identified as Godwin Bekee has shown off what he can do with everyday materials and people are amazed.
In a Facebook post on Monday, July 5, the man revealed that he used almost 15 000 pushpins to create a beautiful portrait of a popular Nigerian clergyman, Paul Adefarasin.
Its beauty is best seen from afar
Godwin disclosed in a conversation with Briefly News that he spent three weeks making the artwork. When asked what his best work has been as an artist, the man said it is the pushpin art he just created. He added that it took much emotion and determination.
Tagging it digital art, he said the beauty of the piece is best seen when looked at from afar. He quipped:
"Push Pin Art is a digital art you will not be able to understand when you're standing close to it until you move a little bit away to see the beauty. I used the blue, white, black, yellow and red push pins because this are the primary colour that bring out this rainbow when viewed."
