Born in 1989 in Gatundu, Central Kenya, Samuel Ashanti Githinjii is part of a new generation of East African conceptual artists. He acquired a diploma in Fine Art of the Buru Buru Art Institute in Nairobi in 2012.

His latest body of artworks is his response to local and global political, social and economic grievances, injustice and inequity.

Exhibition by Samuel Githui, Until Dec. 31 2019 @ Red Hill Art Gallery

Untitled
Dates: Until December 31, 2019
Venue: Red Hill Art Gallery

One
Samuel Githui has been well known for his figurative paintings, combining sensitive observation with technical skills. This new body of artworks reveals a remarkable shift from realism to surrealism.

“This work is a continuation of a previous experimental study, that was exhibited two years ago at the ‘Hatua na Kuruka’ (‘Step and Jump’) exhibition at Kuona Trust.

My current work has been focusing on motion and progression, by attempting to create motion on a static composition, as earlier expressed in the chalk drawings “Transformation”, exhibited in 2018 at Circle Art Gallery.

I felt the need to let the medium dictate the cause of action rather than taking the lead on a directive and executive role of creating the work.
By doing so I want to elaborate the relationship and interaction of different media – in this work predominantly acrylic – and discover optional ways and possibilities to communicate and express myself in my artworks.” Samuel Githui

Exhibition: Sculptures & Mbuno, from Feb. 10 2019 @ Red Hill Art Gallery


Opening: February 10, 2019
Venue: Red Hill Art Gallery
Time: from 11 am – 5 pm

Sculptures & Mbuno
From traditional Makonde Sculptures – chameleon entwined Shetanis by Hossein Anangangola and grotesque creatures by Tanzanian Bernhard Pius & Mathias Nampoka – to the contemporary Giacometti like elongated and fragile female bodies of the late Makonde sculptor Simun Nyedi Dastani and his sons Boniface and Simon: the breast, the jar-head, the neck evolving into a snake, the long and frail legs, the clinching child – stylized elements as old and contemporary as ever.

From Zimbabwe’s first generation Shona sculptors Bernhard Matemera, Henry Munyarazi and Amali Maroba to a contemporary abstract stone sculpture by Tom Phiri, from Zambia

From the Kenyan master in wood sculptures Morris Foit to contemporary Kenyan sculptors Denis Muraguri and Gor Soudan.

A three dimensional presentation enriched by the archaic wax crayon paper drawings of Kivuthi Mbuno, his bizarre, hauntingly grotesque and almost surrealistic interpretation of nature, man and animal.

Exhibition: The Narrative Painter by Joseph Cartoon, Dec. 9 2018 – Jan. 27 2019 @ Red Hill Art Gallery


Dates: On Until January 27, 2019
Venue: Red Hill Art Gallery
Time: 11 am – 5 pm

About
Cartoon’s art is not conceptual, nor political. It is personal. He is a narrative painter, visualizing in his own distinctive way local values and culture, a perfect and idyllic world of a disappearing tradition.

Like a puzzle the viewer finds his/her way through the narrative. Entwined and twisted figures float, swirl and tumble across the picture plane, embedded in a multi-patterned, ornamental, fabric like background. The central figure is the caring female, who, in an ideal world, provides food and shelter for the family.

Joseph Cartoon was born in 1976 in Ngecha, Kenya.
In 1994, he joined the Banana Hill Art Group, an offspring of the Ngecha Artists’ Association.

In the 1990s, the Ngecha Artists’ Association was a group of young, self-taught artists, without academic or artistic education, founded by Sane Wadu, Wanju Brush and Chain Muhandi. The Banana Hill Art Group was led by the artist Shine Tani, who became Joseph Cartoon’s mentor.

Joseph Cartoon was a member of Banana Hill Art Group until 2001. He developed his own authentic, semi-abstract, ornamental, pattern-rich and colourful style of painting, featuring strong and powerful African women as his predominant subject.

Joseph Cartoon has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in East Africa, Europe and South Korea. In 2002, he participated in the Scholars Exhibition of the Royal Overseas League in London and was awarded a one-year Artist-in-Residency in the UK.

He returned to Kenya in 2003 and is living and working as a freelance artist in Banana Hill, just outside Nairobi.

Exhibition: The Tingatinga Collection, Jun. 18 – Jul. 16 2017 @ Red Hill Art Gallery

The Tingatinga Collection: From simply Genuine to authentic Fake | Image via the Gallery


Opening: June 18, 2017
Venue: Red Hill Art Gallery
Time: 11 am – 5 pm

Until: July 16, 2017

The Tingatinga Collection: From simply Genuine to authentic Fake

About
In this exhibition the Red Hill Art Gallery shows a collection of artworks from the first generation Tingatinga painters: Eduardo Saidi Tingatinga, Kaspar Henrick Tedo, Mandu Adeusi – and Mohamed Charinda and George Lilanga.

Some of these artworks were obtained directly from the artist and others through galleries. Most of the Tingatingas were acquired privately. They purported to be ‘authentic’, however the beauty and simplicity of the paintings prevailed over the certainty of their authenticity. Provenance in this area is rarely certain.

About
“This exhibition is the second at Red Hill Art Gallery to show my portraits of some of the extraordinary artists currently working in Nairobi and beyond. I have called this exhibition ‘Artists and Friends’, a nod to the Sargent Show in London last year, and the deliberate ambiguity of the title. All are, I hope, friends and most are artists.
The last few years has seen an explosion of visual art in Kenya, artists of a new generation whose themes and subjects are multifarious, but all of whom share the same serious concern for the nature of the human condition, and it is this that interests me in my choice of subject, the artists themselves.” – Dale Webster
