Art Round-Up – junk metal art sculptures!

Hi there,

This is the first in the series  – Art Round-Up!  Giraffe abstract art is BIG here in Vic Falls.  There are so many takes on this magnificent creature!  As I was looking through all the variations, it was a tough decision to choose the best.  And, as this was the first in the series, I wanted it to be a bit of a wowzer 🙂

How’s this for initiative – recycled art projects!  Our art feature today is a piece that is in the Art Africa Sculpture Park.  An open-air gallery nestled between the Three Monkeys Restaurant and N1 Hotel.

Actually, it was a bit hard to miss!!!  Stands at around at under 2 meters – a resourceful, creative and a fun take on giraffe abstract.

I was unable to get the Artists name –  if you are the artist, get in touch!  I would love to feature you here at Cake at Vic Falls!

Here’s a close-up…

How cool is that!!!  Even a fork to boot!  Recycled metal art!!!  For those of you who believe in recycling – won’t you agree that this artist has been resourceful and turned junk into art.  Lots of work has gone into this, he would have had to find all the bits of metal first, make the structure and then weld the various metal pieces together to fill it out.

My rating on this metal art sculpture is 9/10

  • Creative
  • Resourceful (turning junk into cash)
  • An excellent example of recycling with art
  • And I loved the fork addition and the feet!

I’m now on a mission to find other junk metal art sculptures!

 


(Up-date) I have found some more at Look Out Cafe’.

How fun that there are folk turning waste into creative art.  While the abstract giraffe is not something you could exactly put into your suitcase and take back home – it does give a glimpse of diversity of art in the area!

What rating would you give these creative art forms?  Leave a comment below 🙂

  1. Hi Tracy! Wow, that’s some cool art you found there. I really like it. The concept of making something beautiful out of stuff that would otherwise get thrown away (i.e. old, rusty metal) is really good; and sustainable as well! I really like the idea: When you look at it from the distance, it’s a giraffe. When you look closely, you see all those details that also make a real contrast; a bit steam-punk-ish!

    Thanks for sharing and good luck with your blog 🙂

    Cheers,
    chris
