El Anatsui is one of the most significant living contemporary artists. Anatsui is respected for his contributions to African modernism. Within his practice, he explores geometry and form through materiality. A key contributor to the Nsukka art school and various artistic movements that ensued in West Africa, Anatsui has found interesting ways to negotiate the complexities of what it means to create as an artist from the continent.
