Nigerian art student Chancellor Ahaghotu breaks Guinness World Record for longest painting marathon

Nigerian art student, Chancellor Ahaghotu broke the decade-old record for the longest painting marathon after painting for 100 consecutive hours.

Chancellor who is in his second year 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 work on one large painting or create several, but the painting(s) must be of a recognizable image; abstract painting is not permitted. Over the course of four days, Chancellor worked tirelessly to produce 106 pieces depicting all types of subjects, including celebrities, food, plants, animals and more.

At hour 60, when he surpassed the previous record, he painted a broken record player.
