Art meets Fashion IN NAIROBI...

DICKENS OTIENO (@godownarts)
How incredibly moving that an artist of such note would be inspired by my work enough to create this "life size" dress using shredded aluminium cans woven on coffee wire mesh.
.This piece, like his other work is made from discarded drink cans to create 3 dimensional 'apparel'.
I absolutely love how he captures movement. (in this case Dickens uses RedBull cans to achieve the exact colour of the orignal dress by Congolese Designer Tina Lobondi
Dickens Otieno's sculptures are created through a unique fusion of weaving and modelling recycled tin cans.
