  • Muriuki started his artistic career making experimental snapshots while at university. A recurring subject for the artist is the transition of urban space.

    Based in Nairobi, the city becomes his primary inspiration: his works explore ever-changing, yet interdependent facets of the urban landscape, with architecture and construction providing strong visual and metaphorical dimensions.

    At present, the artist is experimenting with motion, video and mixing media. His work has been exhibited and collected in Kenya, South Africa, USA, Denmark, Spain, and Germany among other countries. He is a founding member of 3Collect, an artists' collective engaged with curatorial practice.

    As part of the charity auction of Kenyan contemporary art, Lots 1 – 8 will not be subject to Bonhams' buyer's premium and payment must be made directly to the African Arts Trust. The charity auction will take place on Monday 20 May at 7pm.
