Naseem Torres of Newark, New Jersey, has some remarkable artistic talent.
Not only is the 16-year-old incredibly creative, but he also has a supportive family. Thanks to their encouragement, he’s found his happy place: making imaginary creatures out of pipe cleaners.
The teen with autism has quite a gift for transforming something ordinary into an intricate masterpiece. Just ask his cousin, Nassir Barrino, who recently sang his praises online.
Nassir posted a few videos on Twitter to show off Naseem’s epic collection of monsters, writing, “My lil cousin is the dopest. The most creative lil dude I know.”
From beasts that look quite a bit like Godzilla to strange alien figures, each piece is unique and full of detail. Plus, every one of them has a name!
Neither cousin has revealed how long these pipe cleaner marvels take to construct, but we’re guessing Naseem spends hours (if not days) working on each one!
While his monsters have dazzled countless people to the point that they’re asking to buy them, Naseem isn’t ready to part with any of them just yet. Regardless, he’s glad the world knows about his creations!
“My family and I would like to thank you all for the overwhelming support that you guys are giving our little guy Naseem,” Nassir wrote in an update. “We truly appreciate it.”
We’ve never seen a talent like this one! We’re so glad their family is encouraging Naseem to be himself, and we’re thrilled that they’re sharing these wonders with the rest of us. We can’t wait to see what he does next.
Check out more of his spectacular creations in the video below, and share this story so your friends can appreciate them.
