Southland Sessions Presents: From high school operas and drive-thru art exhibitions to Chicano comedies and underground DJ sets—we are showcasing the vibrancy of arts and culture across our city today.
Corey Helford Gallery is open virtually. This October enjoy the almost surreal, hyper-realist portraits of Nigerian artist Arinze Stanley which are so detailed, one could be forgiven for thinking they’re photographs.
Click through below to see some of the works.

About Arinze Stanley
Nigerian hyper-realist artist Arinze Stanley presents Paranormal Portraits which he says are intended to explore what it’s like to be black today — in Nigeria and Africa, where Stanley is from, and around the world. Created with charcoal and graphite pencils, the works are so lifelike they almost look like photographs.
