United States President Donald Trump today praised a Nigerian artist, Oyedele Adedokun Isaac (doks_art) for drawing a portrait of him.
The young artist drew a ballpoint portrait of Trump and took to his Twitter page on Sunday to tweet at the US president:
“This is my second portrait of President Trump. This time, I really want him to see it,” he tweeted.
Oyedele revealed that the 24×21 inches portrait took him about 70 hours to finish.
The tweet caught the attention of Trump who responded in praise of the artwork and also encouraged him not to give up:
“Not only did I see it @Doks_Art, I think it is fantastic. You are a wonderful artist, never give up your dream!’
