The Kobo Trust
The A.I.R.Brush

The second cohort of artists in our residence programme, A.I.R.Brush, features Stacey Okparaverro (Nigeria), Timothy Wandulu (Rwanda) and Lionel Yamadjako (Benin).
We are pleased to invite you to an exhibition opening of the works they did during their 3-month stay in Nairobi on Friday 22nd September at The Kobo Trust, Riara road (Next to Valencia Gardens) from 6p.m- 9p.m. The exhibition runs till Friday 6th October, 2017.
About the Artists:
LIONEL YAMADJAKO is a multi-faceted contemporary artist from Benin Republic who works primarily with Painting, collage, photography, drawing and mixed media art. He grew up in the capital, Cotonou in the 80s and 90s and honed his creative skills from a tender age. He has attended numerous workshops and artist residencies across different African countries which have helped to shape his visual vocabulary over time. His most recent works speak of relationships between human beings and their day- to- day social, economic, religious and political activities. Lionel has exhibited in quite a number of African, Asian and European countries and lives and works in Cotonou, Benin when he is not travelling.

STACEY OKPARAVERO is a Nigerian based multidisciplinary artist and curator whose work addresses social, political and emotional issues that resonate deeply with her. She has worked under the mentorship of established Nigerian artist, Dr. Bruce Onobrakpeya for some time. This has in turn had some influence on her recent work as she explores the materials and expands the boundaries and possibilities of the techniques through rigorous research and experiments. Her recent participation in the 2016 Dakar Biennial established her presence on the international art scene. She has exhibited at the Suba Biennale, Dak'Art Off, in the prestigious Centre International de Conférences Abdou Diouf (CICAD) and Art X Lagos in November 2016, just to mention a few platforms that her works have graced.

Theresa Musoke - Legendary Atist Of Uganda

Born in Kampala in 1942, at a time when few African women, let alone Ugandan women, were going to University, Teresa Musoke completed studies at Makerere University Department of Fine Arts, the best art school in East Africa at that time. She began receiving recognition while still an undergraduate with prestigious commissions like her famous “Birth Mural” at Makerere University Mary Stuart Hall, the National Parks of Kenya, and Entebbe International Airport. After graduation, Musoke received a Commonwealth scholarship to do printing in the UK where she earned a postgraduate diploma in printing from the Royal College of Art in London. She then took up residence in Kenya for the next 20 years where she exhibited at local galleries such as Paa ya Paa, Gallery Watatu and African Heritage. She held several exhibitions abroad, particularly in the Scandinavian countries where her distinguished works of romanticized wildlife in a moody mixture of abstract batik and oil painting won great acclaim. She taught art at Makerere University, Kenyatta university College, the International School of Kenya and several other venues.
In the process Musoke has been acknowledged as one of Africa’s leading women artists and has won many awards. Selected exhibits abroad include the Royal Academy of Art in London, The Hampton Institute in Virginia, USA, Botanic Museum in Brussels Belgium, and Africus-Johannesburg-Biennale, South Africa.

Phto Exhibition: La Sape

Meet the Sapeurs – the dapper dressers, the fashionistas who are part of the Congolese subculture – La Sape (Society of Ambianceurs and Elegant People) – devoted to the cult of style and refined behavior.
The Sapeurs’ sense of style is one of joyous exuberance, flamboyant colour, polished tailoring and impeccable attention to detail. The Sapeurs have a simple philosophy: to live with joie de vivre.
Acclaimed photographers Baudouin Mouanda from Brazzaville and Yves Sambu from Kinshasa have been documenting this flamboyant movement for several years. Their brilliant portraits of the sapeurs strike a balance between documentary and art.

8th to 23rd September 2017
Kuona Trust
'Hatua Kuruka' By Samuel Githui

‘Hatua na Kuruka’ is a composition of purely experimental work that sort of breaks the routine of Githui's usual approach towards creating art. The kind of tendency that he thinks every creative person is allowed to sort of hiding, behind ones’ self.
The work set to feature in this exhibition comprises of a few different mixed medium paintings (mainly acrylics, ink and oils on canvas and paper) that accidentally came about in the process of experimenting and familiarizing himself with the mainly acrylic medium. The work presents a different approach to art that Guthui finds exciting and rewarding in regards to the results that manifests in the process.
The intention and purpose of the art works according to Githui, was mainly to explore the landscapes of thoughts, or, take on a journey to the unknown destination.

Sept. 8, 2017 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Sept. 9, 2017 to Sept. 23, 2017 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
