Kizo Art Gallery celebrates this artist in a unique exhibition.

Wakaba Mutheki continues to grow from strength to strength and his work now graces the walls of private and public collections the world over.

Kizo Art Gallery celebrate this artist in a unique exhibition that sees him exhibiting side by side with his colleagues Elga Rabe, Barbara Ploner and others. The exhibiting artists work differently in their style and medium, however they all share a common thread in their subject matter which is their love for the continent of Africa.

The work on show varies from portraiture and landscape to social and political commentary. All artists work mainly on canvas and their works differ in style and in scale.

Now residing in Johannesburg, Mutheki indicates his gratitude to be showing in KZN and his joy at once again being able to show in a province that has given him so much and was instrumental in launching his colourful career.

The exhibition runs until February 15 in the Upstairs Gallery at Kizo Art Gallery, Shop G350, Palm Boulevard, Gateway Theatre of Shopping, Umhlanga. More information on 031 566 4324.
