Zebra hide can be used to refresh any room in your home. The Burchell’s Zebra, also know as the plains zebra, is the most common and widespread of the species. Their location ranges from the southern tip of Ethiopia up through East Africa, and as far south as Capetown. The plains zebra is a mid-sized herbavore, and thick bodied with relatively short legs. Like all zebras, they are boldly striped in black and white, and no two individuals look exactly alike. Available now at yorksshonagallery.com
Endlessly inspired by the spirit and work of all the @lagos_biennial organizers, artists and volunteers. Just some of the work from the exhibition by Poku Mensah, @rita.gt, David Palacios, @silas_mensah.artist and yours truly.
Although this painting may look cracked and chipped, its textured surface was intentionally created by the artist using mixed media.
Chief Conservator Steve Mellor was able to distinguish between this intentional surface and areas of lifting paint that were in danger of detachment. Here, he lays down the unstable paint flakes before the painting, Sunshine Land by @artistetchif , is hung in the galleries for the Visionary: Viewpoints on Africa’s Arts exhibition. #VisionaryAfrica#AfricanArt#Tchif#Benin#bossesday#ConservatorsOfInstagram#artconservation
