It is apt that this girl has a long name, as she took some time to complete. She is finally done and ready to be shown to the world. She is standing in the sea with waves breaking around her ankles, holding a surfboard above her head. She consists of thousands of small tiles all hand cut with a wonderful tool – tile nippers. This tool enables the artist to cut a tile to any size or shape and to then render very fine detailed mosaic work.
She is currently on display in a fine art gallery in Tokai, Cape Town, called Art@Tokai. If you are in the area, pop in and have a look at the art in this wonderful gallery. Reproduced from the work of Celine Chat.
