I visited El Anatsui’s exhibit at the Blanton Art Museum on the campus of The University of Texas in Austin. Not only was I able to view his magnificent work, but he lectured as well. Although, he works in wood, his largest pieces were executed using bottle caps and copper wire.
When you view his metal work from afar, it appears to be fabric. He is a very accomplished artist with work all around the world in museums and private collections.
