Africa Reinvented (small)

R 3,250.00

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 piece. I then cut the books into 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. Eac one is signed.

Please note:  Each piece is made individually and as such will not look exactly like the photograph featured - colour, shape and heights of the books used will vary. 

The Artwork is available in 3 different sizes:

Mini - 32cm x 25cm x 3cm (inches: 12.6 x 9.8 x 1.2) 
Small - 48cm x 40cm x 6cm (inches: 18.9 x 15.75 x 2.36)
Medium - 58cm x 45cm x 8cm (inches: 22.83 x 17.72 x 3.15)

International courier: This is calculated at time of check out

South Africa: Door to door courier is free

I send the art piece via a registered courier service from South Africa to anywhere in the world. The box has a global tracking number. This takes between 5 to 7 working days, though I have experienced waits of up to 21 days when the artwork is held up in customs.  Please note, your country may apply import duties at the discretion of the customs official on arrival.  This is for your account.
