“Migration if often seen as an unfortunate phenomenon, however, I am a beneficiary of a less tragic form of migration. For me, migration is synonymous with creativity and innovation. The multi-cultural migratory environment in which I grew up in Kenya shaped my view of life and had an impact on my art.
The migratory history of Kenya’s urban centres has also shaped the art work and livelihoods of a group of refugee artists. This has included a group of artists involved in our innovative programme, Artists for Refugees.”
