Evans Mbugua is an artist from Kenya. He currently lives and works in Paris, drawing inspiration from both cities. He comes from a background of print and graphic design, working with color and texture.
“I portray my life, that of my friends and strangers. In this way, diversity nourishes my curiosity of the world. I take a look at our identities and their hidden facets. I favour portraits to celebrate my characters. I use glass and perspex to beautify my subjects by shine and reflections, while underlining human frailty. In my work, pictograms represent our urban environment which shapes, rhythms our life and which, in turn, becomes my playground.”
