- An African man, Kelly Omodamwen, has got the attention he deserved as people praised the installations he made from spark plugs

An artist, Kelly Omodamwen, has amazed many with his creativity as he used spark plugs to make beautiful art installations.
As some of his works surfaced on Twitter, many wondered how long it took him to beat the plugs into shape and create what he intended with them.
With spark plugs, he has been able to create masterpieces that depict a ram and drummer. The intricate design of the installations makes them more beautiful to look at.
Talking about the ram piece, Kelly said that it was inspired by the pandemic when he thought humanity was going to end.
He said he was inspired to make the sculpture when he was all locked up in his studio, adding that the animal's horns represent the big power to overcome any kind of challenge.
As at the time of writing this report, one of the tweets about him has gathered thousands of reactions on Twitter.

"God bless your handwork."
"Dam*n ...how long did it take to perfect this amazing art."
"Problem is, art is not valued realtime, until hundreds of years later, when the artist is long gone. Artist will die in penury, and his work will be priceless. Give value to artist while they live."
"You are in trouble if you tell this man "I'm your plug."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that another citizen of the nation, Abinoro Akporode Collins, wowed social media users after his works resurfaced online, drawing comments from many.
Simple cutlery like spoons form the main material for his artworks. He uses them to create whatever art he wants.
In some of his pictures on his Instagram account, he displayed amazing pieces like an eagle, human portraits, among other great works.
