Recycled art is one of the most dynamic forms of contemporary art in Africa. Recycled art is usually recognized as the use of discarded materials and other locally available materials that might look like garbage, to some, to make art. This is also referred as junk art that uses every day disposable item in new formats although the original item may not be changed. The artists turn trash into artistic treasures.
The lists of items used are inexhaustible. They range from telephone wires, coat hangers, bottle caps, drinking cans and straws, food tins and cartons, fabric pieces, scissors, cotton reels, toys, plastic anything, kitchenware, glassware, pottery, tiles and mosaics, linoleum. Natural objects like bone, horn, feathers, shells, quills, teeth and musical items like tapes, film, cassettes.
