Artists in a modern world

Artist Kejii Ando has attracted attention by painting sneakers for sale – mostly Nike and Reebok – in fresh and innovative designs. Do you wear them or exhibit them? You can be like nobody else – well get a pair.

El Anatsui hails from Ghana and is working from Nigeria. He has attracted international attention over the years. Starting with Ghanaian traditions he has moved into installations where he uses bottle caps and other every day thrash creating new visions – bright and shiny installations.

And teaching at the University of Nigeria is part of it. He has been around the world as an exhibitor, visiting artist, teacher. Africa is coming!
