Jerry-cans, plastic, wax cloth and found objects all feature in "Made In Porto-Novo", the latest London show by Benin artist, Romuald Hazoumé.
The exhibition at the October Gallery in Central London tells of the precarious existence of Porto Novo's small time petrol importers whose livelihoods rely on bringing huge jerry-cans of fuel over the Nigerian border.
Hazoumé's variety of art forms combines the old with the new, the traditional with the modern and his unique voice pulls inspiration from his own Yoruba tradition. Network Africa's Bola Mosuro met him on his opening night.
