Abinoro Akporode Collins: Nigerian artist who makes amazing life-size sculptures using spoons

Nigerians 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 a sculptor, he makes his creation using spoons, a 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 different things he has made. One of the captivating masterpieces is a bespectacled female head bust with spoons serving as her clothe neckline and hair peg.

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 forties) about to kneel on one leg. What strikes most about this particular piece is that the man’s face is without a facial feature but with a collection of balls.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Kehinde Wiley is another individual that is very much worth celebrating.

Born on February 28, 1977, in Los Angeles, he is a versatile artist popularly known for painting African Americans in traditional settings.

According to his public profile, his mother’s passion for education influenced his childhood as he started taking art classes at the age of 11. He got his BA in Fine Arts in 1999 at the San Francisco Art Institute before he proceeded to get an MA in Fine Arts from the School of Art at Yale University.
