Boniface Maina Art
Thus Maina is part of a new generation of artists who are finding fame and fortune both at home and abroad through a combination of training, exposure and inner reflection based on their unique perspective in present-day Kenya. In his previous exhibitions, he criticizes the rich nations and asks the reason for their love for the poor countries of the world. He also deals with the oddities in foreign policy and international relations. But also the classical themes of the performing arts such as love and music are represented in his work. He is one of the co-founders of the Brush Tu Art Studio in Nairobi, where young artists enter into cooperative ventures.
