Date: December 8, 2017
Venue: Nairobi National Museum
Time: 2 pm

The group will also have an exhibition – NextGen – at the Museum, Creativity Gallery – running until January 15, 2018

Join the artists on Friday 8th December at 2PM for a fun and interactive graffiti session in the gallery!

The bomb squad crew (BSQ) is a street art group consisting of young Kenyan artists. The group formed in 2011 and hails from the city streets of Kenya’s capital, Nairobi. It is made up of members with a passion and love for art, specifically mural work and graffiti. The exhibition titled NextGen is BSQ’s first major exhibition. The public is invited to join the artists on Friday 8th December at 2PM for a fun and interactive graffiti session in the Nairobi National Museum’s Creativity Gallery!

NextGen is an exhibition about the next generation, a generation that has forgotten the beauty of our culture. The artists use a variety of techniques in collaborative and individual works to investigate how our culture is affected today by the mixture of traditional and technological influences.

BSQ hopes to show museum visitors that street art is not only for vandalism but can be displayed in a museum gallery to express and address different societal issues, in this case to portray how technology has affected our culture both positively and negatively.
BSQ have managed to carve up a name for themselves as the most energetic, inspiring and creative art crew in East and Central Africa. BSQ is a group of young Kenyan artist formed in 2011.
