painter: Mary Ogembo
about the artist: The African woman inspires Mary Ogembo‰Ûªs work. She depicts the beauty and daily activities of the woman, and overlooks the negative stereotype placed on the African woman. Her paintings are very rich with vibrant Earth colors, usually associated with Africa and the background pretty much relates to the subject and brings about the state of the environment. Her subject forms are exaggerated in some areas, which give the paintings a naive look.Ogembo is a Kenyan born artist who has been working as a full time artist since 1998. The Artist is currently based at the GoDown Arts Centre in Nairobi.
