Turning Tyres into Art BBC

Amadou Fatoumata Ba is an unconventional Senegalese artist who uses old tyres as raw material for his sculptures.

Some of his work was shown during the last biennial arts festival in Dakar earlier this year, and several gigantic tyre statues are permanently exhibited at a museum in Saly, a coastal city a few kilometres away from the Senegalese capital.

BBC News followed Amadou Fatoumata Ba as he went about his work.
