Exhibition by Samuel Githingi Ashanti at Red Hill Art Gallery

Samuel Githingi Ashanti graduated at Buruburu Institute of Fine Art in 2008 with a Certificate in Fine Art and in 2012 with a Diploma in Fine Art.
Red Hill Art Gallery shows a selection of his latest artworks created in 2015, large scale oil-acrylic-mixed-media canvases and pastel-mixed-media works on large paper sizes.
‘Self-Portrayals’ is a very personal contemplation of a young artist’s search of himself; influenced by African mythology and spirituality and inspired by his Rastafarian credence, a reflection about death and life, desperation and hope.

……it’s just too hard a day to move on not thinking deep of life and death, this has changed my view aboutl life and spirituality, through this it has made me able to create a series of work – spirits in trial,time in trial which reflect much on me in relation with nature or life…..

Samuel Githingi Ashanti is an inspirational and promising emerging artist who responds to his environment with his very own personal voice.
He was born in 1989 in Gatundu, Central Kenya
His artworks were shown in the ‘Affordable Art Exhibition’ of the National Museum, in the ‘Manjano Art Exhibition’ and in the ‘Kenya Art Fair’.

The exhibition continues until 17 January 2016.
