Asiru Olatunde (1918-1993)Like his father and grandfather, Asiru Olatunde was trained as a blacksmith. In 1961 he began to create his first figures of animals out of recycled copper and aluminium that resulted in his unique repoussé technique on aluminium panels.

The depiction of the tree of life is repeatedly seen in his works. (cbo)
