El Anatsui

Society Woman’s Cloth 2004, 400 x 500cm, canettes en alluminium, capsules et fil de cuivre. Image and details of the work came from here.

Here is one of El Anatsui's beautiful art works - don't miss his current show in London - it is on until 12 May at the October Gallery, 24 Old Gloucester Street, London WC1. Founded in 1978, the October Gallery is an art gallery dedicated to the appreciation of art from all cultures around the world. Have a look at their website and past exhibitions - they show some great work.

El Anatsui is also showing work at the Fowler Museum, UCLA, Los Angeles, California until 26 August.

there is something so precious about something made from rubbish - a real sense of creation.

the installation of driftwood or one like it is in the V&A Slave Exhibition. It's truly amazing to see it.
