ARTY SPECS ARE LITERALLY RUBBISH!
MEET the man from Africa who is turning rubbish into art.
Cyrus Kabiru grew up in the slums of Kenya, next to the country’s largest rubbish dump. After being surrounded by rubbish all day, he came up with a novel idea to turn it into artwork!
His parents couldn’t afford to buy him his own pair of glasses when he was young, so he started making his own funky frames from all sorts of bits and pieces he could find – everything from cutlery to old tapes and fans!
Cyrus’ art has since been exhibited all over the world. Next month it will be on display at one of Africa’s most important art fairs, ART X Lagos.
