About Matins

matinsI started in 2007, having observed that there was plenty of plastic bottles, tins and bottle tops that were scattered around making the environment look untidy. I collect bottles and tins from dust bins, and I also go around asking my friends to preserve their throw away tins so that I can use them for my work.

I clean  them and using scissors split them into desired shapes, I then decorate them using waste clothes and sew them together using a wire.

Among the challenges that I have faced so far is the fact that art is not really appreciated in africa as a whole so that leads  to unavailability of market for my products.
