The 23 year old artist from Nigeria has left many people in disbelief with her drawings, and has led to many likes and retweets. Chiamonwu started drawing from the age of 7 years but started doing professional drawings at the age of 20 years after realising how good she was with her art. For big portraits she said she takes about a month to complete it but 2 or 3 weeks for smaller canvases.
