Dennis Muraguri

Fascinated by matatu culture, Dennis Muraguri has perhaps captured the vibrant visuals of this ubiquitous part of Kenyan life more famously than any other artist. His mixed-media pieces are visually striking, with bold colours expressing the vivacity of touts, passengers and the matatus themselves. Dennis studied Painting and History of Art at the Buru Buru Institute of Fine Arts, graduating in 2003 at the top of his class. A member of the Kuona Trust, he has previously exhibited at the GoDown Arts Centre, the Goethe Institute and the Ramomo Art Gallery, and is also known for his sculptures and installations.
