Shabu Mwangi, an artist from Nairobi has for several months been an IfA Fellow in Art and Culture House Schlesische27 guest. As a painter and activist living and working in Lunga-Lunga, a village in Mukuru slum, Nairobi / Kenya, he heads together with his artist friends a wonderful artistic and educational project for children -. “Wajukuu Art Project”.
Shabu’s stories and the work of the group of artists under such difficult conditions have been very touching and I find him necessarily to get to know. He brought about 20 woodblock prints of five artists from his group. These particular works must necessarily be sold.
On July 20, at 18.00 we celebrate his farewell party and will exhibit for the occasion pictures and sell.
Location: Shop Gallery in the Silesian street 10/11
There are smaller sizes, the prices between 80 and 250 €, very moderate. 20% of the proceeds goes to “Wajukuu Art Project”, 80% to the artists.
Of course you are also welcome if you want to buy a picture.
We also show a short film, so you can get an idea about life in Mukuru slum.
Some of Shabu’s own oil paintings will also exhibit in the portrait series “Stateless” that have arisen here in Berlin.
