An artist a day: Wangechi Mutu
To showcase and pay homage to insane talent, I've decided to do an art series. Every day for the next 10 days, I will be sharing 2 of my favorite art works by a specific artist accompanied by a short artist bio. The intention is not to review these works but rather to experience them. I hope these pieces will move you, challenge you, rebuke you and soothe you as they have done to me.
Day one: Wangechi Mutu
Born in Nairobi, Kenya, Wangechi is a sculptor and contemporary artist whose works have been showcased and exhibited throughout the world. Her work has an afrofuturist feel to it. These two pieces below are by far my favourite.
If you want to experience sheer awesomeness that will delight your senses, make your way to her website (here). It is curated to offer a very interesting visual experience while giving more information about her art, where she comes from, exhibitions, books and much more. Trust me and click on that link, and thank me later.
