Tom Mboya

Tom Mboya’s distinctive style – a cocktail of expressionism and impressionism with semi-realistic forms depicting people, nature and wildlife – has been recognised at Nairobi’s leading galleries, the Kenyan government and collections overseas. While Tom studied hospitality and worked in that industry for eight years, his passion for art proved to be his true calling and with exhibitions at the Go Down Art Centre, Ramoma, the National Museum of Kenya and at spaces in Germany and Italy. This is Tom’s second showing at The Talisman, with a series entitled ‘Perceptions of the City’ that captures the vibrant streets of Nairobi and their buzzing traffic, as well as the beautiful serenity of the surrounding nature.
