Moussa Tine Contemporary Metal Wall Hanging

Moussa Tine’s works are signified by use of recycled materials, first using discarded fragments of plywood, and more recently exploring the qualities of recylced metals. He prefers to use parts of automobile mufflers because such iron can endure the stress of heat.

This delightful piece incorporates wire wrapped borders, nails throughout and three figures, which can be interpreted as a parent and two children.

Description

Moussa Tine is an important contemporary artist whose works have been shown at a number of local and several international exhibitions. Although he has received some beaux-arts training, his first career was as a self-taught sign-painter. In particular, he created and for twenty years ran a small business painting motifs on the colorful car rapides or public transport mini-vans that ply the streets of Dakar.

His works are signified by use of recycled materials, first using discarded fragments of plywood, and more recently exploring the qualities of recylced metals. He prefers to use parts of automobile mufflers because such iron can endure the stress of heat.
