Moses Nyawanda shows his recent paintings inspired mainly from his personal lifestyle and experiences and influenced by the cubist style. He uses his art as a tool of remembering, recognizing and appreciating one’s history, as well as for keeping records for future use.
Kepha is a graduate of the Buru Buru Institute of Fine Arts. A multi-talented artist, Kepha prefers to concentrate on sculpting using mixed media. He is greatly inspired by African culture and women. He has recently been using mahogany wood to create hyper-realistic work that is quite mind boggling.
