Lot Details

'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.

Her sculptures are also held in other museum collections in Europe, Britain and Japan and in numerous private collections throughout the world.
