Haitian Oil Drum Art
Steel oil drum art from Haiti can be beautiful, whimsical, religious and highly decorative. It's made of recycled material. The Haitian artist begins with a 55 gallon steel oil barrel which they split open and flatten out as a large a sheet of canvas. The artist first sketches out the design with chalk then cuts the steel using only a hammer and a nail. The round sculptures are made from the lid or bottom of a 55 gallon barrel. Each sculpture is signed by the artist. These sculptures are great indoor or out. When used outdoors the finish will begin to rust slowly and naturally. If you want to maintain the original look spray the piece with clear varnish.
