BlocArt is recognized in South Africa for their creative repurposed wood wall art

A Canadian flag handmade by artisans in South Africa utilizing re-purposed wood that could have come from anywhere; it's a MisHMasH of cultures.... That's so Canadian. 

Handmade in Cape Town South Africa of re-purposed wood sourced from building sites and recycling depots.  The wood is collected, cleaned, painted and then hand cut into pieces and re-assembled into little works of art.  As they are not working with new materials and the process is all by hand, every piece is unique and brings with it a little bit of history through the life stories of the wood gathered together to create something new.

Being hand made items of natural and re-purposed materials, marks and flaws in the wood are what makes the pieces so special
