    Exhibited
    Ed Cross Fine Art, London, Peterson Kamwathi: Matter of Record, 2010

    Following on from his iconic Constitutional Bull, woodcut series Kamwathi lived through the disputed 2007/8 General elections, one of the most dangerous and violent moment's in Kenya's post-colonial history where the country inched towards civil war along ethnic lines. Kamwathi was among several artists who felt compelled to respond to events as they unraveled. In earlier drawings the sheep had become to represent citizens in the face of both local and global malign forces. But in these extraordinary drawings produced in real time, Kamwathi depicts the country's political leaders as rams strutting and preparing to charge whilst mayhem is unleashed on the citizenry, their property and the very fabric of society.
