Wangechi Mutu

Brilliant African artists who are shaking things up and changing the game

Kenya: Wangechi Mutu (multimedia visual artist)
The Kenyan-born artist  Wangechi Mutu is perhaps one of the most renowned figures in the contemporary art world, with an aesthetic that is so unique and respected the world over. Mutu is a mixed media visual artist who creates larger than life pieces that sometimes see epic female figures
Her work has been shown in museums and galleries such as the Tate Modern in London, the Whitney Museum in New York and innumerable others. Last month at the Dak’Art festival in Senegal, Mutu held the African premier of her animated film The End of Eating Everything. For those unlucky enough to miss it, the film will screen again at the Lusaka International Film Festival in Zambia in October and at the Stevenson Art gallery in Cape Town, South Africa. No form can constrict Wangechi Mutu’s artistic expressions and she continues to astonish by her unusual and deeply provocative art.

  The author is a Ugandan multidisciplinary performance artist and scholar who was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya
