This month we are featuring the work of Jack Chikeya.

Jack is an artist based in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. He has found a vocation in creating wonders from the scrap metal that has started to litter the landscape as his country dives deeper into political upheaval and financial trouble.

 

Jack is not into politics. He just wishes to feed and clothe his family and to encourage other artists to work alongside him to better their already difficult situation.

 

Each piece uses ordinary welding machines, scrap metal, and sheet metal and takes around 4 hours to make.

 

These wonderfully sculptures are great for the home or the garden. They will instantly bring a smile to your face with their uniquely quirky character.
