ABOUT THE ARTIST
Dennis Muraguri, born in 1980 in Naivasha is a multimedia artist, now based in Nairobi, working in painting, printmaking and sculpture. Muraguri graduated from Buru Buru Institute of Fine Arts with a diploma in Painting and Art History. He has been a resident artist at Kuona Trust Art Centre since 2005.
Muraguri is recognised for his work inspired by ‘matatu’ (Kenyan minibuses and vans that are the main mode of public transport). In these works, he employs a range of approaches to look at the urban culture of contemporary Nairobi. In his work, Muraguri explores the urban culture of contemporary Nairobi. In his sculptures, Muraguri works with recycled wood and metal to create a representation of industrialisation in Kenya.
