SHANTY TOWN SERIES: Dimensions: m(wide) x m(height)
Charles Ngatia Mwendwa
I am a self-taught artist and I work with mixed mediums and recycled material. My main subject is the Kenyan slums, which I paint using bright colours to show their diversity.
SHANTY TOWN SERIES
Kenyan slums are often depicted as dark and sad places, however, the artist sees them differently. This is why he has chosen to use a vast array of colours that show the reality of the place; not murky, but diverse, full of life and hope.
