Today, Peregrine Reads brings to you the rave of the moment! One whose paintings have moved the hearts of many in a special way that has succeeded in bringing humanity together to not only appreciate the beauty of art but the truth that art itself speaks!
Oresegun Olumide one of Nigeria’s raw talents is being celebrated on the internet today for his UNIQUE paintings which apparently has no competition whatsoever with any in the world.
The young artist graduated with a distinction from Yaba College of Technology where he studied painting from the department of Fine Art.
Upon graduating, Olumide set up his personal studio Reality Edge Studio in Ikorodu where he breathes life to work of arts with oil on canvass.
Born into the prestigious Balogun Kuku clan of Ijebu Ode, Olumide disclosed why he does paintings with water falling off his characters.
According to him:
“Everybody loves water but many do not think of appreciating water. Every day, everybody touches water but nobody thinks of creating something about water. That was the challenge I took and decided to do series of water on body art works.”
With the influence of social media, there’s no doubt the young man is here to stay as his works of art will not leave the mouths of all anytime soon.
Oresegun Olumide deserves a global attention and he’s close to getting that!

In re-affirmation of W. Somerset Maugham of “The Painted Veil”,
“I have an idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos. The pictures they paint, the music they compose, the books they write, and the lives they lead. Of all these the richest in beauty is the beautiful life. That is the perfect work of art.”
