Got back from having coffee at the National Muesum with Yony Wai^te and James Muriuki - a follow-on from a magical visit to Yony's studio on the Athi Plains last week. I feel I've come full circle on this one.
When I first worked as a designer in Kenya 33 years ago, I was sent to commission Yony to do a 20 foot long mural for Samburu Lodge. Yony decided to paint the canvas whilst staying in a tiny apartment in California and so she never had a full impression of her output because the canvas had to wind round a few corners and through a couple of rooms. She then decided to transport it back to Kenya wrapped around her huge new desk-top computer.
As curator of a Fine Art Gallery for almost 21 years, I've met some highly original people and found myself in some unusual situations. I hope you enjoy my day to day adventures of running One Off Gallery in Nairobi, Kenya.
