“As for my art, I tend not to make it a conclusion but a conversation whereby, the viewer is open to interpret. This is more so aimed at getting feedback from the viewer is it positive or negative.”
Maina Boniface was born in 1987 in Nanyuki town- Kenya and currently lives and works in Nairobi.
Maina is an inquisitive artist who started off as a stretcher-bars maker for artists to support his artistic career. His work, since 2009, has been figurative and has evolved in the quest to tackle various themes: has touched on different themes such as social-political satire, music, conflicts in human behavior, and mental health. He is inspired by human reactions and his daily encounters which he shows with his surrealist figures and is currently experimenting with a combination of abstract and surrealism. The figures and forms in his work are distorted, sometimes exaggerated to marry the mood that the work exudes.
