Alex Makumbe collects reclaimed chipboard and old cans to make his Cape Town scenes. This is how he makes a living. Alex came to Cape Town from Harare in Zimbabwe 8 years ago and has been making a living as an African folk artist selling his work at the traffic lights ever since.
Recently Alex has teamed up with three other Cape Town crafters to sell their work online and to the whole world via their Mother City Craft Collective Etsy shop.
He is selling custom made collages, or you can choose one he’s already done. Have a look.
Alex’s artwork is available from the Mother City Craft Collective Etsy shop.
