Kenya: Riziki Art Exhibition to Open

For two weeks, the Alliance Francaise in Nairobi will be turned into an art lover's paradise. This is courtesy of Thom Ogonga, an established Kenyan artist who has put up 'Riziki', an exhibition of his recent paintings and prints.

The art show features Ogonga's current body of work where, in his own words, 'combines typical illustrative paintings and drawings while experimenting with conventional printmaking techniques in painting."

The artist who was born and bred in the city is one of the fastest-growing artists in Kenya. He goes out of his way to give Kenyan art lovers unique pieces. The exhibition will run until November 30 .
