Africans are not just creative, they make amazing things that are significant to the projection of their immediate communities.
Abinoro Akporode Collins is a fine artist with a unique interest in sculpture and drawing. He is not just any sculptor, he makes his creations using spoons, popular cutlery in every home.
Abinoro has been able to create detailed pieces of arts with just spoons. A look at some of his works transfixes easily.
On his Instagram page, there are pictures showing the different things he has made. One of the captivating masterpieces is a bespectacled female head bust with spoons serving as her clothing neckline and headpiece.
Another one that captivates is an eagle frozen in action while about to perch.
Abinoro uses spoons to achieve the grotesque in a sculpted image of a man (age unknown, perhaps in his late or early 40s) about to kneel on one leg. What strikes most about this particular piece is that the man’s face is without features but with a collection of balls.
