Whether you're in Shanghai for Christmas holiday or you're traveling, consider checking out a local art museum (especially iGCSE and IB students! Take pictures and make an investigation page about anything you see that inspires you!). I'm currently in Colorado for Christmas, and I looked at the Denver Art Museum website to see what's happening, and look what I found! An artwork made entirely of.... BOTTLECAPS! How coincidental is that?
Ghanaian-born, Nigeria-based artist El Anatsui is best known for creating intricate, large-scale, colourful tapestries out of bottle tops, wire and other found materials. They take months if not years to create. To read more about this artist, have a look at El Anatsui's website. I found some of these images on Kissart.net.
