Nigerian art student, Chancellor Ahaghotu has broken a decade-old record for the longest painting marathon after painting for 100 consecutive hours.
He has bettered the record of 60 hours
Chancellor who is a sophomore at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, far surpassed the previous record of 60 hours, set by Roland Palmaerts (Belgium/Canada) in 2013.
For this record, the challenger can either work on one large painting or create multiple ones, but the painting(s) must be of a recognizable image; abstract painting is not permissible.
In four days
Over the course of four days, Chancellor worked tirelessly to produce 106 pieces depicting all manner of subjects, including celebrities, food items, plants, animals, and much more.
At the 60th hour, when he surpassed the previous record, he painted a broken record player.
