Exhibition: ‘Heaven Can Wait’ by Michael Soi,Dec 11 2019 – Jan 10 2020 @ Circle Art Gallery

HEAVEN CAN WAIT: An exhibition of new works by Michael Soi, Kenyan, b.1972

Opens Wednesday 11 Dec, 6 – 8 pm
Venue: Circle Art Gallery

The exhibition runs until 10 January 2020*

Michael Soi’s distinct style is instantly recognisable in Kenya. His satirical commentary on Kenyan social, economical and political life has garnered him a large local and international following. Soi began his practice in 1995, and his paintings are influenced by the history of political cartoonists in the region. This new body of work continues this tradition.

He has traveled far and wide to residencies and workshops and exhibited in East Africa, Ghana, South Africa, South Korea and U.S.A.

* The gallery will close for the holidays from Dec 21 to Jan 2 2020. During this time we will open by appointment between 11 am and 3 pm.
Call +254 (0)790 289-991 to book an appointment, and please give at least 24 hrs notice
