Recently, several Nigerian have been in the limelight for their hyperrealism paintings. These are painting that make you doubt whether what you see is a painting or a picture. Silas Onoja does that to you with his oil on canvas hyperrealism creations.

One thing you would find on most of Onoja’s work is the depiction of water. You can clearly see how water is life in the way his subjects interact with it. Each droplet or dribble makes his paintings that much more real; as real as his local subjects. Another feature of his work is the concept of freedom, whether from constraints or from worries. Tell us you don’t see that in his images below.
