About (via The Polka Dot Gallery)
The Polka Dot Gallery is excited to be working on Anne Mwiti’s Second Solo Exhibition at our gallery.
Anne Mwiti is a contemporary/Expressionist artist living in Nairobi, Kenya. She also doubles as a lecturer at the Department of Fine Art and Design, Kenyatta University.
Anne’s paintings are creations influenced by the contemporary world around her of people, cultures, and environment where she draws her inspirations. Her latest collection of work titled ‘Different Brush Strokes’ explores people and places close to her. Her time on the Nile, the view from her home and even a little painting of our very own Polka Dot Gallery.
Anne has been on our top list of artists over the last two years, her unique style and her affordable prices are popular with everyone.
