In celebration of Kenya at 50 years, six artists explore what freedom means to them both as artists as well as Kenyans in an economically emerging continent. The artists express the concept of freedom using a multitude of media with minimal constraints or parameters producing a body of work that provokes us to think of what freedom means to us as Kenyans 50 years after Independence.

In 2001, Ms. Nam visited Kenya for the first time and was so impressed by the people and scenery of Kenya that she began a collection of oil paintings on Kenya, and held her first exhibition of Kenyan paintings in South Korea.

Ms. Nam has been actively painting since she was 15. As a student she won the first prize in a national competition which resulted in her receiving a full scholarship to study art in university. In 2008 Ms. Nam held two exhibitions, “To Kenya” and “Bible painting”; in 2012 she held “London Stories” a collection of paintings of the United Kingdom and Ireland after her travels.

Ms. Nam has exhibited her paintings in over 100 group exhibitions.
