Dickson Kaloki is one of Kenya’s most exciting emerging artists. Kaloki hit the art scene in 2011 with his celebrated slum-series. He now continues to explore slum structures, but his latest works go beyond the classic mabati and timber houses, narrow corridors, and ubiquitous Kanaro River to explore the interaction between individuals in the slums, their environments, and the city of Nairobi.
The Stranger in Me combines these new mediums, themes and styles, showing Kaloki’s depth as an artist.
From January 16th through February 4th, Que Pasa is displaying a selection of Kaloki’s new pieces.
Join the opening night, Thursday January 16th, for Canapés and Conversations with the artist starting at 7pm.
Que Pasa is located in the Karen Shopping Center
Date: August 9, 2013
Venue: Que Pasa
Time: from 9 pm

I am fascinated by the form and musculature of polo ponies: the angles and bends of their legs, the negative spaces created by horses standing and at a full gallop, and hooves on the ground and in the air. In this body of work, I continue my exploration of the horse using silhouettes, muted background colors, and the play of light on the body. These all combine to create this new body of work, which has never been exhibited before. In fact, I am not sure that the paint is dry!
