About MS
Michael Soi is a member of what is termed as the second generation of Kenyan artists that emerged through kuona trust in the late 90’s among a group of other notable artists of his generation. In 1996, he began his career soon after graduating from art school as a sculptor and subsequently refined his own visual and artistic vocabulary over the years. He begun work that was more of social commentary revolving around everyday life of the ordinary Kenyan and this work has been well received by Kenyans living here in Kenya and in the diaspora who the artist basically addresses in his work.

His work has been collected by the Casoria Museum of Contemporary Art in Napoli, Italy, the Standard Chartered Bank (UK) and individuals like Luis Moreno Ocampo, Michela Wrong, Atsango Chesoni, Robert Deveraux among others.
Michael is based in Nairobi at the GoDown arts centre. This exhibition addresses issues observed on the last five months from football, bars, the Olympics among other things.
