In pictures: Wire art exhibition in South Africa
On the streets

Artist Willard Musarurwa threaded beads onto wire to create his larger-than-life Cape Minstrel.

His beaded wire figure is inspired by the Cape Town Minstrel Carnival, usually in January, when thousands dress up and take to the streets.

Willard started out making and selling small wire bicycles on the streets. Even then, he applied his commercial skills in setting up his wire craft business, Feeling African.

He got his first big break in 2004 after entering a competition.
