A donated artwork by Tony Enebeli, one of Nigerias most prominent artists, has been posted on Bid or Buy to raise funds for NSRI.
Tony Enebeli is one of Nigeria’s most prominent artists. His main media are plastocast and metal foil; with these unusual media he has created a distinctive style. His works capture scenes from his native Anioma area in Delta state as well as other parts of Nigeria.
This artwork for auction was done by the plastocast method, it is the same as the one employed by sculptors: a negative mould is made with plaster of paris, and into it a liquid form of the plastic is poured. It is allowed to set, pulled out and retouched.”
