Lot description
'Red Bull Salsa' is a wonderfully vibrant work by the celebrated Anglo-Nigerian female sculptor Sokari Douglas Camp. The work is imbued with huge wit and humor and demonstrates the artist's eye for detail as well as her truly remarkable facility with her materials. Her work is predominately sculpted in steel and characteristically takes inspiration from her Kalibari heritage, as well as drawing on other aspects of African culture.

Sokari Douglas Camp is a Nigerian born sculptor now living and working in London. She was born in Buguma, Nigeria, a Kalabari town in the Niger Delta and was raised by her brother-in-law, the anthropologist Robin Horton. She studied art at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California (1979–80), earned her BA at the Central School of Art and Design (1980–1983), London, and her MA from the Royal College of Art (1983-1986).She has worked with the Smithsonian and the British Museum, and her work is in their permanent collections. Her sculptures are also held in other museum collections in Europe, Britain and Japan and in numerous private collections throughout the world. Sokari Douglas Camp was a recipient of a bursary from the Henry Moore Foundation and in 2005 she was awarded a CBE by Queen Elisabeth II for her contribution to sculpture.
