When I saw the fabulous art by Anatsui at the ROM in Toronto, I knew I had to read about him. El Anatsui: Art and Life by Susan Vogel is an excellent book! It is very well written – Susan Vogel concentrates on the artist’s techniques, experiments, philosophy, and statements to take us through the career of a wonderful abstract artist. I felt that I could understand how the artist developed – the paths he chose, how he proceeded. It felt like an artist writing about another artist. Richly illustrated, this book covers most stages of Anatsui’s art practise.
