'I think there's a big revolution happening in the art scene in Kenya. There is a group of young Kenyan artists who are doing great things and always asking questions. They have a strong voice and I think many people are finding it hard to keep them down! So I'm very hopeful, and I think I'm lucky and honoured to be part of this big force that is coming.'
An excerpt from 'Anthony Okello' by Polly Savage
- Making art in Africa 1960 - 2010
Anthony Okello is indeed part of the big revolution in the art scene in Kenya and is considered to be one of the most important artists of his generation from this region. Two of his works already reside in the major collections of Robert Loder and Robert Devereux, both in London.
In Okello's latest work he still portrays what could be read as allegorical explorations of mythology but which are also the predicaments of all humanity in its current context. With this series of works he also enters into an interesting collaboration with his brother Peter Walala in which he applies his figurative narratives to the top of Peter's assemblages of clothes labels - the results are stunning.
