Arinze Stanley is probably one of the most naturally gifted artists on the planet. He says that he’s been drawing since he knew how to hold a pencil. But it can be hard to believe that he had never had training – in any form whatsoever. Still, his hyperrealist works are so amazing.

The artist said in an interview, “I draw inspiration from life experiences and basically, everything that sparks a feeling of necessity, I love to express deep and strong emotions, as I find them most attractive.”

Like most masterpiece artists and geniuses, he seems to enter a trance when he is creating something. He says, “Sometimes it’s almost like I’m not in control of my pencil — sort of like energy transfer. Most times I feel like I transfer my energy into a blank piece of paper through my pencils and it just becomes art.”
