I’ve overheard people in the gallery looking at the wall sculptures in our current exhibition and saying, “I want to touch them.”
I look at them and think, “I want to wear them.”
The sartorial quality of his work struck me from my first gallery visit, and I continue to see the rich textures, colors, and languages of Africa embodied by his work (and not just the wall sculptures) all around me.

Can I pull off bright red with bright yellow? Mixed metals? Pattern on pattern?
Why, sure. That’s very Anatsui of you, Natalie.
