Exhibit: Shabu Mwangi, until May 26 2011 @ Le Rustique

Lawrence Mwangi [Shabu] is a 25-year-old Kenyan artist living in Mukuru slum. He is one of the founders of the Wajukuu art project that provides Art classes to children in low incomes areas. Deeply rooted in his community, Shabu has always worked as an activist and artist, he also collaborates with the organization Art2Be working with marginalized groups using artistic and therapeutic methods to fight stigma and discrimination.
This is his first solo show. Deeply personal and at the same time very much influenced by the figure of Edward Munch in The Cry, Shabu Mwangi gives us a tale of the inside, a broken silence where the faces and  the bodies do not need any narrative interpretation. The obscurity of these paintings proceeds from a personal experience and from fundamental emotions. Like an incessant path between strength, weakness and pain, these works put us in the place of the artist and the viewer, a constant reminder that our existence is very fragile.
