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

The exhibition ‘Equilibrium – A Moment in Solitude’ is a unique reflection of waterscapes through the lens of black & white photography, capturing the movement of water in still images to reveal vivid contract, unique tones and a feeling of space.
Equilibrium is Zia Manji first exhibition and reveals over 30 photographs from a body of work including the beaches of the Indian Ocean, the lakes of the Great Rift Valley and France, waterways in Venice and the Lochs of Scotland
The Photos capture the relationship between water and other elements mirroring the photographer’s relationship to the subject as a means of finding balance. The use of monochrome distills the essence of the photograph to reveal reflections, textures and passage of time that would otherwise be missed.

In the run-up to the next general elections, the Opposition Parties’ Conference is the talk of the country. It is horse-trading time- and a motley collection of incumbent legislators, each with their own agenda- are bent on cobbling together a semblance of unity to secure their seats- and of course the hefty perks!
Key to this conference is Winston Churchill Matumbato- so called ‘Kingmaker’- who is supposedly a venerable political animal.
The meeting is being held at the Walevis’ Authentic African Hotelunder management of the proprietor- Mama Toto. The proceedings are followed keenly by her general factotum- Solo. The press are attracted to the conference like moths to a candle. The local press is represented by Pitbul Nteria, and the international angle is covered by Don Brother. However, it transpires that everything is not as it seems to everybody. This production sees the return to the Phoenix Stage of Ng’ang’a Kirumburu and Mwangi, and features David Opondoe [Propose Me!], Yriimo Mwaura [Duets], Bruce Makau [Romeo & Juliet] and Kevin Amwoma [Smile Orange], among others- including some fresh talent
