Kenyan visual artist Cyrus Kabiru ingeniously fashions electronic trash into fabulously unique decorative eyewear. Kabiru openly speaks about his motivation to help the environment in a short AJ+ video and on his site.
Cyrus Kabiru currently practices in Nairobi. He is a self taught painter and sculptor. …His sculptural work embodies his role as a “collector” of Nairobi cast offs. Kabiru fashions and refashions these waste, recycled, and found materials into various forms. Currently he is focusing on a series that depicts African nature using thousands of bottle caps sewn together. He is perhaps best known for his C-STUNNERS, an ongoing work which where Cyrus creates and wears artistic bifocals. The work sits itself between fashion, wearable art, performance, and one of a kind commodity objects.
