Exhibition: Nairobi Nocturnes by Stravros Pavlides, Mar. 19 – Apr. 2 2015 @ Kuona Trust

Nairobi Noc
Nairobi Nocturnes is a series of atmospheric, figurative paintings by current Kuona Trust artist in residence, Stavros Pavlides.

Exhibition opening: Mar. 19 2015
Venue: Kuona Trust
Time: 6 pm

Exhibition Runs Until: April 2, 2015

The paintings present various open-ended narratives using Nairobi city by night as muse. Prompted initially by Nairobi’s ominous night-time reputation, Stavros Pavlides wishes to examine, interpret, and comment on perceptions of the city through the highly subjective ‘lens’ of painting.
