On Sunday 17th September 2017, I attended an exhibition at the Banana Hill Art Gallery. It was called the Afro Art Exhibition.
Njogu Kuria and Nduta Kariuki were the main exhibitionists. It ran from the 9th September to the 29th September 2017.
The theme of this exhibition was African art, hence the Afro Art Exhibition title, and included paintings from Nduta and Vinyl art from Njogu.
Njogu Kuria is a pundit in vinyl art, a style that is unique and outstanding. From his portraits of famous singers to elaborate carvings of African women with distinct African features, his style lures you to this amazing creation made by vinyl pieces.
Nduta, on the other hand, is a prodigy of color theory. Her monochromatic portraits are saturated with character, making great compositions that are distinct. Most of them are brightly colored, against an other wise dark background.
The art prices ranged from Ksh. 8,000 to Ksh. 300,00, depending on the size, style and what i guess what the artistic value to the work. The sizes of the pieces were mostly small to medium. Under those circumstances, none of them were larger than A1.
I loved the presentation that Banana gave the artist, with a complete list and pricing that was easy to pick from. All things considered, this was a very beautiful exhibition that gave good exposure to the artist.
