John has been painting professionally since 2001. His preferred medium is the use of oil pastels on different surfaces. His inspiration comes from humans, animals, urban constructions, and nature in general.
This is his second exhibition at the Talisman and since his previous exhibition, he has shown his work at many other venues including Nairobi National Museum, True African Art Gallery in New York and Africa Gallery in London.
When not creating his own work, John gives art lessons to willing adults and children as well as volunteering his expertise to marginalized communities.
John’s work is on show at Talisman from the 24th of January.
