When you look at these pictures you could be forgiven for thinking they’re black and white photos taken on a digital camera.

Such is the effect of Chiamonwu Ifeyinwa Joy’s hyperrealistic drawings.

The highly talented charcoal and graphite artist, 23, from Nigeria has stunned people with her drawings which have taken inspiration from her Igbo culture and the traditions that are part of it.

She tells Metro.co.uk how she creates her art.

‘I’ve been drawing since I was 7-years-old. I discovered at elementary school that I was passionate about art.’
