  • I am amazed
    And reminded that art is an encounter of a soul and an object. One encounters the other and each is changed. Today I am changed and charged.

  • El Anatsui is explosive in the mind - the recycling of banal discarded objects into stunning colorful HUGE works of art that delight with their composition and impact with their scale. A sheer joy from the beauty constructed from trash. What a gift this man has given us - a new way of seeing beauty in the world around us. Hope from Africa!

    — Bruce

  • He really brings meaning to the idea that one man's trash is another man's treasure

    — Jim

  • Overwhelmed by these majestic works of art. The way the artist makes you wants to get closer to the different works only to find out they are made of garbage is amazing.

    — Manuel

  • These materials leave me with a sense of freedom, movement and expansion.
