“I sometimes think there is nothing so delightful as drawing” remarked legendary artist Vincent Van Gogh.

Ghanaian-born artist Enam Bosokah has now taken the delightful art form by the scruff of the neck and raised it to a whole new level of exquisiteness.

“A lot of artists avoid pens because of the irreversibility (i.e., the inability to erase), but I believe it is one of the easier tools to work with”, says Enam.

Eyeing from a distance, the images look more like black and white pictures. A closer glance, however, reveals intense use of creative techniques such as cross-hatching and stippling.

Unlike most artists, Enam does not require a studio.

Enam says that he wants to be able to create anytime and anywhere–that is why he just uses pen and paper, while sitting on his bed and drawing.

There is no name for the style of drawing that Enam does. “I have not named my style as I will always change it, I didn’t want to keep to one confinement. It’s a freestyle.” says the evolving genius.

Further segregating himself from the crowd of commercial art, Enam has decided not sell his art as of now. He wants to build a collection first.

On his current artistic experience, Enam remarks, “I haven’t had an exhibition where people can see my work and interact with me. When I get them together and exhibit, I can tell a story to my audience”.

To earn his bread-and-butter, Enam accepts custom orders from fans of his art.

Enam has gained much popularity by depicting prominent African personalities in a stunningly realistic fashion.

Most African painters shy away from “hyperrealism” and “photorealism”, which is the what exemplifies Enam’s paintings as incredibly unique.

Here are some of the gorgeous portraits that Enam has sketched:

The UK government on Thursday announced that it will move India from the red to the amber list on Sunday, in the country's latest update to the 'Red-Amber-Green' traffic light ratings for arrivals into England amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

This means the visit visas for the UK from India are open, in addition to other long-term visas that have remained open. But travellers from India arriving in England can complete a 10-day quarantine at home or in the place they are staying (not mandatorily quarantine in a managed hotel).

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
