Gakonga is a talented artist who’s greatest gift is inspiring others to capture and enjoy the magic and colours of his homeland Kenya. Colours dance across white paper, from the burning golds and reds of a dying sunset to the hot happy colours of a tribal dance! Every painting has its own happy rhythm, one you enjoy learning and dancing along to as you create your very own African art. Song and dance are all a part of Kenyan life and Gakonga will soon have you dancing along with him to warm, happy African Music.
This modest Kenyan artist has achieved many things.... from having tea with the Queen to designing a vibrant African book cover for Penguin books. Gakonga’s greatest joy is painting and every piece of his work is alive with his spirit. He has worked with children and teachers in the U.K. and in Kenya inspiring both creativity and joy.
