Patience Practice and Persistence..
Arinze Stanley Egbe was born on 20th November 1993 in Lagos, Nigeria and graduated from Imo state University with a B.Eng in Agricultural engineering.
Starting at an early age of 6, Arinze has always been enthusiastic about drawing realistic portraits on paper through his drawings. Being exposed to his family's paper buisness, Arinze grew to love paper and pencils as his toys at a very tender age. Over the years He gradually taught himself how to master both Pencils and Paper in harmony through what he calls his three P's namely Patience, Practice and persistence. These have guided him throughout his journey as an artist.
Arinze Stanley works in a genre of art called Hyperrealism which is considered an advancement of Photorealism
With no form of training, Arinze drives at creating art that sparks a mood to viewers. A response that entailes some degree of disturbance to the mind of his viewers.
"My art is born out of the undying zeal of perfection both in skill and expression as I find myself spending countless hours working an a drawing.
I draw inspiration from life experiences and basically everything that sparks a feeling of necessity, I love to stimulate deep and strong emotions, as I find them most attractive.
Most times it’s almost like I lose control of my pencils and like energy transfer, the art flows through me from my pencil to the paper.
I work with my Principle of the Three P's namely Patience, Practice and Persistence. These have guided me over the years towards perfecting my craft."
