“Congratulations to him”–A Nigerian art student breaks Guinness world record with 100 hours of painting Marathon

A Nigerian art student identified as Chancellor Ahaghotu has broken a decade-old Guinness world record for the 100-hour-longest painting marathon.
Chancellor, who is a student at an American school, Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, Georgia, far surpassed the previous record of 60 hours, set by Roland Palmaerts (Belgium/Canada) in 2013.
He started the quest on October 26 and ended on October 30th, taking him four days to complete the marathon.

Speaking on his record attempt, he wrote, “I came to the United States to pursue my dreams and build up my career as a recognized artist. Breaking the record will boost my recognition as an artist both in my school and the world at large”.
“Over four days, Chancellor worked tirelessly to produce 106 pieces depicting all manner of subjects, including celebrities, food items, plants, animals, and much more.”

One thing I love about the paintings I created is that they represent my different moods and how I was feeling when I created them”, Chancellor explained.
Chancellor says he battled fatigue around the 88-hour mark, but he was committed to reaching his target of 100 hours, so he didn’t think about calling an end to the record attempt.

There was joy and celebration when I completed the 100 hours,” Chancellor said. “It was a new experience for me and I’m so glad I completed the 100 hours“.
