Exhibition: Works by Omosh Kindeh, Wilson Mwangi & John Silver, Jul. 7-Aug. 5 2012 @ Le Rustique


Dates: July 7- August 5, 2012
Venue: Le Rustique

Works by: Omosh Kindeh, Wilson Mwangi and John Silver

About
Omosh Kindeh is 31 years old. He lives in Nairobi and works as a sculptor and painter. The work on view at Le Rustique is part of his most recent paintings.His source of inspiration purely comes from the society, his habitat and Nairobi, depicting human variations, their nature and behaviors. He particularly like the sense of aesthetics that comes from particular buildings, their lines and angles which are very often broken by the curves of human bodies in an attempt to express the thin line between our habitat and our identity

Wilson Mwangi was born in Nairobi in 1976 and attended Muhoro Sec School for the Deaf (NYERI) in which he passed his national examination. His sense of composition made of clear cut lines combined with contrasted colors make each of Wilson’s painting look like a jigsaw puzzle where the imbrications of animals, landscapes, symbols play a special role to make each work coherent despite the number of elements.

John Silver is a self taught artist. His woodcuts prints have found their way to several institutions, among others the Victoria and Albert Collection in London. John’s prints have a dream-like quality, full of colour, texture and fantasy.
