Description This is a painting I did in 1999. I used boxes and other shapes to show the life in the village, middle class homes, Nairobi City and Mount Kenya with a sun in the background. It took me two weeks working 5 hours a day to finish the painting. The original is very special. I wonder if I will ever get the time and patience to work on a piece this intricate ever again. I also have pieces of the same painting broken into various artworks within my Fine Art America ABSTRACT and SURREAL Gallery.
Anthony Mwangi, Nairobi Member Since January 2015 Artist Statement In simple terms, I am a natural student of art since I was a little child. I recall small awards from various institutions since I was in class 5.
I have loved drawing all my life. For some time since I left high school, I ventured into graphic design which really helped me in day to day upkeep. Meanwhile, I would sell a painting here and there as I progressed in other avenues of Art. Photography is another passion I have cherished over the years. I have published two full color comic books in Kenya and Netherlands.
8 years ago I also got into 2D and 3D modeling and Animation. I feel this goes a long way in enhancing my artistic talents.
All in all, my deepest love is for fine art. I am happy to be a member of ImageKind Forum. I look forward to showcasing most of my work in fine art, photography and digital arts in this forum.
