El Anatsui (b. 1944 in Ghana)

For some reason I had the urge to look at his always amazing work today, so there it is:

Sacred Moon, 2007 Aluminum and copper wire 103 x 141 inches

Untitled, 2007 Aluminum and copper wire 144 x 192 inches
Afor, 2010 aluminum liquor bottle caps and copper wire 111 x 117 inches hanging straight
Three Continents, 2009 Found aluminum and copper wire 8 x 16 Feet

The pictures really don't do the works justice but check out this small video by Susan Vogel on Vimeo to get a better idea of texture and the size of the works... Amazing!


  1. All I can say to this is ... wow!

  3. Just saw El Anatsui's work at the Clark in Williamstown, Mass. It looks great in their new building!
