Moses Nyawanda and Kevin Ndege are based at the Railway Museum Art Studio. Pascal Chuma and Isabellah Mosigisi are from the Bobea Art Centre in Eastlands. Moses Muigai practices from his studio at home in Thika. Both Moses Nyawanda and Moses Muigai are graduates of the defunct Creative Art Centre which played a significant role in the Kenyan Art Scene from the 70s to the late 90s.
