Exhibition of new works by Mary Ogembo

About
Mary Ogembo‘s work is inspired by the African woman. She depicts the beauty and daily activities of the woman, and overlooks the negative stereotype placed on the African woman.

Her paintings are very rich with vibrant Earth colors, usually associated with Africa and the background pretty much relates to the subject and brings about the state of the environment. Her subject forms are exaggerated in some areas, which give the paintings a naive look.

Mary Ogembo’s paintings have been collected by The National Art Gallery of Zimbabwe in Bulawayo, The Standard Chartered Bank UK and Casoria museum in Naples Italy.
She has also held successful exhibitions outside Kenya in the following countries; France, USA, Egypt, Canada, Finland, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Tanzania, Zambia, India, Germany and Lithuania.
