Moses Nyawanda, Moses Muigai, Kevin Ndege, Pascal Chuma and Isabellah Mosigisi come together in a group exhibition entitled ‘Colour Identity’. Colour is a potent element of these artists’ visual language, each distinctively exploiting colour value in his/her creativity.
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. Pascal studied at the Buruburu Institute of Fine Arts and Kevin and Isabellah are self-taught.

In her recent work, Deqa explores the conflict of identity, culture and tradition which emerges in the lives of young, urban Africans. Very much a product of the modern world, she looks back to her roots in Somalia using the architecture of the Waab, the Somali traditional home, to try to rationalize the juxtaposition of these issues in her life. The resulting works are multi layered images, in keeping with the complexities of her investigation.
