From Saturday, October 28, 2023, to Tuesday, October 31, 2023, Lola Mewu began painting different artworks.
Now she has completed the feat, having painted for 72 hours, beating the previous record holder, Roland Palmerts of France, who painted 60 paintings in 60 hours. His artwork was displayed in a museum.
Lola has now broken that record, having painted for 72 hours, some of her paintings have been auctioned.
Many of Lola’s paintings feature throwbacks from childhood, like playing in class, visiting a call centre, and looking out the window.
