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.

About the Fragile Strength, the project
Every week, girls from Korogocho slum, have the chance to learn boxing. An initiative organized by BoxGirls, this local association promotes boxing in areas where sexual abuse towards women and girls is very common. BoxGirls main goal: to boost the self-esteem and self-defence of women and girls as well as to make them stronger both physically and psychologically.
The portraits from this urban sprawl of Nairobi aim to capture the fragility and the strength of these young girls; the challenges they face to take part in BoxGirls and the path to success.
