Africa Reinvented (medium)

R 3,950.00

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 interesting shapes and patterns. I then cut the books into different sizes and glue them onto a piece of rigid board. There is a sturdy hook on the back for hanging the African art piece on the wall. Each one is signed.

This piece is sold UNFRAMED.  The photo featured is an example of what the sculpture would look like framed.

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

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)
