Tony Elumelu Need to Connect, compensate Saheed Art for Portrait design

By Oladipo Emmanuel

Tony Elumelu need to connect and compensate  Saheed Art for drawing a unique Portrait of him.

Nigerian artist, Saheed Opeyemi makes a pencil drawing with charcoal on alabaster that portray a real identity of the personality.
He hailed from Ilawe Ekiti in Ekiti State, Nigeria. He is a student of United High school. He is passionate about drawing.

As part of our tradition at Glintsightv,  the Africa creative telescope that discover, Nurture promote and connect potential to global opportunities, our search light discovered his creative attributes in art and design.

Saheed started his art concept at a tender age, 10, to be precised  during his primary school days. 

He disclosed to Glintsightv that all is creative idea are not man made or influenced by anybody. He said "I am a self taught artist". He finished his secondary school education level last year (2021). 

He still looking forward to admission at Federal Polytechnic, Ibadan as he planned to study Art and Design to complement is creative concept. So many people acclaimitized there personal development and knowledge of innovations to Google but this genius Saheed said God is the one who inspires and endowed him with the gift.

We would have said he inherited it as a generational heritage or learnt it from  relatives but No. His parent are just traders who does not know anything about sketching let alone coloring. 

Saheed said it was a real pleasure and great experience meeting Hon.Dr. Prince Ned Nwoko and Regina Daniels to present their portrait art designs to them. Their expression shows that they love the work."

Art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.


The purpose of art is to produce thinking. The secret is not the mechanics or technical skill that create art – but the process of introspection and different levels of contemplation that generate it. Once you learn to embrace this process, your creative potential is limitless.

Saheed possess and practice the principles  of art: Balance, emphasis, movement, proportion, rhythm, unity, and variety;  to organize elements within his artwork despite the fact that he did have any formal education or certification in art and design.

Many people have ideas but cannot actualise it to become reality and sought-after product. Saheed Art is quite different because he has been making significant difference through his heart of art by projecting a meaningful and creative representation of Africans especially Nigerian via drawing.

Saheed said on his Facebook handle that "I am presenting the final shot of the hyperrealistic pencil drawing made for Tony Elumelu.. Pls help me to share till he sees it.'

The  President and chairman of Heirs Holdings, Tony Elumelu need to see this truly, to encourage this boy heart of art for more creative imagery.

He has carved a niche for himself through his passion for art designs. 

Few of his iconic art imagery are:
