Haitian Oil Drum Art

Posted by Kelly Sullivan on Jan 25th 2019

These beautiful sculptures are hand cut in Haiti by talented Haitian artisans. Detailed metal art work is cut from sheets of recycled oil drum containers. Recycling the scraps of oil drums helps to ensure the landscape is free of litter. Inspirations are taken from nature, religion and everyday life. Each piece of art is handmade and unique. The skill that has developed over the years working with steel drums shows through with the quality of their work. Most metal artisans in Haiti have been working with the drums their entire lives and many families have been making these beautiful metal art works for generations!
