Artwork

Country: Kenya  •   Medium: Mixed Media

The son of well known artist Zachariah Mbuthia, John has been raised in an atmosphere of art. He is a highly creative and sensitive young man, also known for his whacky sense of humour, which obviously manifests itself in his pieces.
Kamicha has done a series of works using Khangas (women’s traditional wraps) as canvas. He paints and draws around the traditional motifs on the material making the background become part of the finished piece.
Through this technique he brings the act of painting closer to his own culture and experience.
Those familiar with his work can see a crystallisation of his talents over the last year and his recent work is very exciting and holds promise of a lot more to come.
