ABSOLUT has always challenged conventions through creative collaborations with artists such as Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst, and more recently Ellen von Unwerth and Spike Jonze.
Through this event we aim capture the spirit of urban Nairobi and appreciate the integration of art and life and celebrate the use of the most ordinary material combined with found items to create the most extra-ordinary pieces.
A week leading up to the competition, artists will begin creating their piece to be completed on the 20th September at Kuona Trust.
The event will begin at 3 pm, the audience will have the opportunity to watch the artists create their pieces that will need to be completed promptly at 7:00 pm. The judges will have an hour to consult and announce the winner. Artists will be ranked based on their creativity, originality, artistic skill, bold innovation.
