A social media user, who was only identified by his Twitter handle @HendrickWorks, has wowed South Africans online with his craft.
Art comes in different forms and one needs to be passionate about it to make a success. Sadly, with many aspiring artists and a highly competitive industry, many artists fail to make a living with their craft.
@HendrickWorks, however, is doing something unique that is getting the attention of social media users. The artist creates replicas of different sizes for customers.
One of his most recent works featured a mini replica of a Toyota bakkie. Taking to Twitter, @HendrickWorks posted photos of the actual vehicle and his handiwork.
Take a look at the post below:
South Africans were left speechless over how realistic the replica looked and they applauded the artist's talent.
Twitter user, @willy_shau, commented:
"This is pure talent.. Bro keep on doing the great work."
Another tweep, @LaDumezulu, added:
"Hope they're willing to fork out 50k per handcraft because it's worth the money."
Samuel Dlamini, who goes by the Twitter handle @msolwatheog, wrote:
"This is good, you are talented my brother..."
Mthie Malinga, @MalingaMthie, said:
"God bless your hustle my brother."
Another tweep, @smbuyana, commented:
"This is real, more than talent."
"Which one is the original car?"
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported on a creative and talented family. Mveliso Teardrop Ntaba showcased his stunning creations via the #ImStaying Facebook group earlier this year.
The proud dad created kasi replica models with incredible detail with the help of his "besties." The miniature informal settlements are built with shacks, roads, vehicles and landmarks. Based on the positive reaction the post garnered, many South Africans were blown away by the art.
One social media user commented:
"Oh my word this is incredible, it belongs at an exhibition - please makes sure it does not get damaged."
