El Anatsui & Erdem Moralioglu

Today I am archiving a fantastic Nigerian sculptor El Anatsui. He makes beautiful fabric like drapes using bottle caps - a form of art and design which became a popular tradition in Africa.

The archive is overlapping fall 2009 Erdem Moralioglu's styles and El Anatsui's work -- drawing particular attention to Erdem Moralioglu because he is Turkish and the clothing has beautiful color composition and texture.
