I’m a huge art enthusiast, particularly drawn to African art; yet somehow, shamefully I had never been to Circle Art Gallery despite its prominence in the Nairobi art scene zeitgeist.
A few weeks back, I was at the Nairobi National Museum and came across beautiful artwork on display by Samuel Kamau Kariuki who describes himself as “a self-taught acrylic visual artist”.
A few months back I was at the Village Market and stumbled upon an art exhibition that was running in one of the halls. Everything that was on display was amazing, vibrant and full of colour. I was drawn in by the images of black women.
