TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY BENJAMIN SIMON Sculptural work of Professor El Anatsui displayed at his Nsukka home on August 8, 2013. The Ghanaian-born Anatsui's first big step toward international acclaim happened in 1990 when he and four others became the first artists from sub-Saharan Africa invited to exhibit at the Venice Biennale, one of the world's most prestigious showcases. His prominence has grown steadily since, including shows in the world's cultural capitals but 1999 is widely seen as a turning point.
