Africa Reinvented (large)

R 4,950.00

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 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. 

The Artwork is available in 3 different sizes:

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)
Large - 75cm x 60cm x 10cm (inches: 29.52 x 23.62 x 3.94)

** The Different sizes can be ordered via their own listing **
