Mbuno

Kivuthi Mbuno

Kivuthi Mbuno (born 1948) is a renowned Kenyan surrealist painter. Surrealists - creating illogical scenes and depicting them with precision - try to resolve contradiction between dreams and reality and to give voice to the unconscious.

 

Kivuthi's dream is, as he says, "a luminous and peaceful world as yet untouched by modern life where nature regains her role as the mother, goddess and the queen of the Earth and its people". Mbuno the Philosopher is doting on an inadequacy of human and animal figures and the greatness of the Nature.

 

His pristine way of handling fine brushes, inks and colour pencils is sophisticated and inventive. His stark colours and illustrative poetic stylisation depict a surprising world with meticulous clarity. Creating a compelling truth, Mbuno the Artist, evokes empathy and liberates imagination. .
