Borrowed Life Synopsis
Melissa feels trapped, being married to what she considers her ‘slow’ husband. She gets even angrier when her younger friend and neighbor buys property, while they are still being held back by her husband’s “poverty mentality.”

She eventually tries to “invest” behind her husband’s back; however when the politician from whom she buys prime land demands for more than she can give, Melissa finds herself thrown into a web of secrets, and nothing could have prepared her for the downward spiral her life gets into, as her unrelenting quest to move on up turns deadly.

Exhibition: Pieces of Fortune – Celebrating Art’s Modernity, Aug. 25-Sept. 2 2013 @ Michael Joseph Centre

Pieces of Fortune Poster
Edward Manyonge’s debut exhibition “Pieces of Fortune” is opening at The Michael Joseph Centre, Safaricom House on Sunday afternoon 25th August starting 3–5 pm and will feature surprise artists in an acoustic performance. “Pieces of Fortune” celebrates the freedom provided by modern aspects of art and its collection is a touch of contemporary designs with some depicting architectural aspects while providing a minimalistic yet valiant feel to Edward’s paintings, most of which are acrylic on canvas.

Painter Edward’s bold and colorful works champion both figurative and abstract mediums that enthrall into an inward journey into his world. His style portrays vivid images and patterns painted “from the inside out” as he puts it, so as to allow for the present moment to inform the process of creation with an intention to feed heart and soul and instill a sense of peace and joy.

Edward started “playing with colors” while still as young as five years old. He would later emerge Second Best in Kenya in a national competition on painting sponsored by Kiwi at 12 years old.
His works have previously been exhibited at joint exhibitions including at Alliance Française and at Braeburn Garden Estate. After studying Art, Design and Photography at the Buru Buru Fine Arts, Edward is now Braeburn Garden Estate High School’s Graphic Designer and enjoys painting at any given free time.

“Pieces of Fortune” exhibition has been supported by Michael Joseph Centre and opens for public viewing from Monday 25th August till 2nd September 2013. Surprise guests will grace the exhibition’s opening in an acoustic performance, after which Edward will give the guests a brief welcoming note.
