Girls Are Mean is based on conversations and encounters with individuals in a variety of spaces in Nairobi. The shift in power, earnings and freedoms in Nairobi for women especially, appear much improved and come with unforeseen ramifications, and as such, tides are changing for the men and society as a whole.

The process of laying down the work is physical, involving mark making, scratching, mixing media and learning about the development of the work as it evolves through addition and subtraction of colour and line.

Colour is a catalyst, applied in layers, one upon the other to create a backdrop that absorbs and supports a multitude of figures.

Please note the pieces were created as a diptych, however, we are able to sell each piece separately.
