Business Daily, BDLife, Pg: 12 - 13 Artists find their voice at Village Market

Boniface Maina and Michael Musyoka seem to have finally found their ‘voice’ during their third edition of the art exhibition titled “Finding Voice”.

The exhibition is ongoing at the Village Market. In their first two editions, one could say that the two were not painting with one voice. For Musyoka, it was a personal, emotional and expressive show of his innermost feelings while Maina’s work was more ironic and symbolic with deep political undercurrents. The two artists, however, seem to have finally found a way to harmonise, blend and balance one another’s work. This is largely due to the fact that they listened to their curator William Ndwiga of the Little Art Gallery who suggested they try painting around a single theme, that of “Fantasy, Rhythm and Blues”. The two plus Douglas Musyoki share a spacious hall and all employ an organic, often golden palette that adds to the singularity of their ‘voices’.

Ken Oloo, the founder of Filamujuani believes this is a good opportunity to afford the young minds an opportunity to earn a living, become financially independent and pursue their education dreams. One of the beneficiaries of the project, Shaban Hassan has worked on a number of local productions like the popular Buni TV’s show, the XYZ Show.

On the 3rd June 2014, fashion consultant Diana Opoti set out on an epic mission dubbed “100 Days of African Fashion”.
