Michael Musyoka | Kenya

Michael Musyoka was born in 1986 in Nairobi where he still currently lives and works.

He grew to appreciate graffiti on commuter buses and walls of business premises in his neighborhood. This has laid the groundwork for his approach to figurative compositions before enrolling into Buruburu Institute of Fine Arts in 2009. These skills would later in life secure him a job as an illustrator in publishing companies and advertising agencies in Nairobi.

In 2013 he founded brush tu art studio, an artist collective in Nairobi, alongside two other artists who he would team up with on various artistic projects including mural painting and mentoring younger artists. This also marked his entry into professional practice which has seen him exhibiting widely locally and abroad.

He was awarded 2nd prize in the professional artist category of Manjano Art Competition in 2015 in Nairobi, Kenya.
