ABUGA, FRED

Country: Kenya  •   Medium: Oil on canvas

Fred Abuga’s creations are influenced by colour, nature and women's activities.
Made with his typical broad strokes of single hues the paintings are a rainstorm of colours which melt into unity when viewed from a distance.  

Fred is a creative Kenyan artist who showed exceptional talent at an early age. He was constantly referred to as ''chief artist'' because of his contribution to the drama and journalism clubs painting backdrops and cartoons.  

Fred holds a diploma in Fine Art from the Buruburu Institute of Fine Arts (BIFA)
