Art Exhibit: Omosh Kindeh & Wilson Mwangi, Feb 11 – Mar 3 2010 @ Le Rustique

Omosh Kindeh is 29 years old. He lives in Nairobi and works as a sculptor and painter
His source of inspiration purely comes from the society, his habitat and Nairobi, depicting human variations, their nature and behaviors. He particularly like the sense of aesthetics that comes from particular buildings, their lines and angles which are very often broken by the curves of human bodies in an attempt to express the thin line between our habitat and our identity .

Wilson Mwangi was born in Nairobi in 1976 and attended Muhoro Sec School for the Deaf (NYERI)
His sense of composition made of clear cut lines combined with contrasted colors make each of Wilson’s painting look like a jigsaw puzzle where the imbrications of animals, landscapes, symbols play a special role to make each work coherent despite the number of elements.

Next exhibition will show Xavier Verhoest’s recent works with an opening on Friday the 5th of March.

    How can I get in touch with Wilson Mwangi? I purchased one of his paintings on display at the National Museum, and I am interested in purchasing others.
