More African Art

imageWhen we moved to the Junction, we knew we were making a big jump geographically. Now that we’ve been living north of Bloor for over three months now, we’re starting to notice subtle cultural shifts as well.

imageFor example, the thrift shops up here are well stocked with art objects from Africa. And not just the wood sculptures from the 1960s that tourists brought back with them on their travels or bought at shops like 10,000 Villages (though there’s plenty of those as you can see in the pictures below). I also keep coming across modern Sous Verre paintings from Senegal (see above).

All in all it is good for me!
