This piece is called 'Africa Reinvented' and is made from old paperbacks salvaged from the recycling pile. Tons of books get pulped every year or just dumped in a landfill - through using them and turning them into art pieces I hope to give these books a chance to tell another story.
Each book page is folded individually and this creates the interesting shapes and patterns of this African art sculpture. I then cut the books to different sizes and glue them onto a piece of rigid board. This has a sturdy hook on the back for hanging the African art piece on the wall. Each one is signed.
This piece is sold UNFRAMED.
Please note: Each piece is made individually and as such the African art piece will not look exactly like the photograph featured - colour, shape and heights of the books used will vary.

Small - 48cm x 40cm x 6cm (inches: 18.9 x 15.75 x 2.36)
