Utumishi Series by Mike Kyalo

Dates: February 10-28, 2014
Venue: Alliance Francaise – Ground Floor Gallery

Mike Kyalo attended Matungulu Boys’ High School in Machakos County. With art not on the school curriculum, Mike formed an art club to pursue his interest which also led to a visit to the GoDown Arts Centre.

Inspired and encouraged by Patrick Mukabi, resident artist at the GoDown Arts Centre, Mike has been mentored by Patrick since leaving school in 2010 and continues to excel at his art. He won the 2012 art competition ‘Experiencing Heritage through Art’ organized by the National Museums of Kenya, and also completed a one month art residency at the Kuona Arts Trust in 2013 courtesy of the Kenya Arts Diary Young Artists Arts Residency.

In this exhibition, Mike presents a series of oil paintings inspired by men at work.
