Mutura na supu
Enjoyed almost countrywide, `mutura’ is a traditional Kenyan food which main ingredients are minced meat and blood. Other ingredients such as on onion and garlic may be added depending with preference. Mutura is a delicacy which is popular among the youth, majority being men, women tend to question the process of preparation hence terming it as unhygienic, but that doesn’t stop a significant number females from craving for mutura. It can be found at matatu stages,roadsides,outside butcheries, in small towns and centers. Almost every Mutura joint sells `Supu’, which is cooked in the process of preparing mutura.

Looking at my artwork brings back childhood memories of playing for hours without a care in the world. When you think it, a lot of art that comes out of various places here in Kenya, some would describe it as sombre or dark. However, come winter or summer it doesn’t matter, we always have the sun… that is the thing about Kenya because of the equator. Its the beauty of how Kenyans smile through everything and that is how I look at my subjects and from a child’s perspective as well. It doesn’t matter where i go in the continent, when i find children playing there are similarities that take me back to my own childhood. As an adult there are a lot of things that we do that we pretty much fence ourselves around from, that we don’t feel or see certain things anymore. That free thinking and openness to learning we can only see it through the eyes of a child. This show that money does not offer Joy, but happiness since money cannot afford the spiritual gifts like; Joy, Love, Kindness, Humility
the junction is a semi realism water colour painting on water colour paper it measures 30 by 43 inches. the idea was to capture how I see my Kenyan people carry out there every day activities, and how peaceful and hard working they are despite the difference in tribes and cultures. I would say its a very familiar place to most of the people who have been in Kenya. this painting was done through observation and study of my people.
