It is a common belief that talented artists can use anything they find as a Canvas to showcase their “wild” imaginations.
This is probably a close description of what a certain Nigerian NYSC member did recently with a Mazda 323 Coupe which he literally transformed into a piece of art. The young man reportedly collected and used waste materials including metals to redesign the car into a beautiful and artistic piece.

According to reports, the young man’s name is Oladele Ogbeyemi and he is a graduate of Yaba College of Technology in Lagos. Oladele claimed that he started and finished the entire art design project during the period of the recent COVID-19 lockdown. Amazing, right?

Just as you might already suspect that nothing good comes without a “price”; Oladele Ogbeyemi revealed that this art project did not only cost him time but also 6 months of his NYSC allowances.
Yes, he literally kept spending his allowances to acquire waste materials which he used in redesigning the Mazda car to become this beautiful piece of art. Upon sharing photos and videos of the finished artwork online; quite a number of social media have been showering him with praises and admiring the amazing art.
Below is a video shared by Oladele in which he showcased the redesigned car;

My inspiration in creating this art piece is as a result of my passion in converting discarded materials into art. @BBCAfrica @CNN @ARISEtv @TVCconnect @MazdaUSA @tundeednuut @lindaikeji pic.twitter.com/23cfVy8bX7
