Books Info:

El Anatsui: Art and Life free pdf An African artist who has garnered worldwide recognition while based permanently in Nigeria, El Anatsui is best known for shimmering tapestries made from liquor bottle tops, which are part of the permanent collections of many of the world's great museums. Author Susan M. Vogel, who worked closely with Anatsui while directing a documentary film about the artist, offers a uniquely personal perspective on Anatsui and provides the first penetrating study of his artworks. Accompanied by nearly 150 images, this book traces his life-long exploration of mediums leading up to the bottle top art form that has captured the interest of the global art world. The book explores the artist's themes of loss, chaos and decay, his Nigerian University intellectual community, and his creative studio practice. Vogel traces the intertwined threads of Anatsui's ideas, life and art- from his youthful searching and desire to express Africa's history to today's work that can be immense and ethereal.
