    — Sam

  • I am very inspired by El Anatsui's artwork. The objects make me feel happy and amazed. The fact that El Anatsui has made the simplest things into amazing artwork requires a phenomenal talent and a great deal of patience. El Anatsui has changed the interpretation of the material by changing the scale of it. If you look at the individual object that is making up part of the artwork, it is very small, but if you look at the artwork as a whole, you can see that it is very large. Who knew, the litter on the street can create revolutionary artwork.

  • El Anatsui challenges our contemporary view of artistry and what it means to be a Black creator in today's world. His work is awe inspiring.

  • I'm not going to look at regular metal again in the same way! I'm going to think about all of the connections I make with other people. This is an idea I have never thought about before!
