NAIROBI'S THRIVING ART SCENE

Ismail Einashe is an award-winning journalist and writer. BBC News recently published one of Einashe’s letters on his exploration of the art that flourishes in East Africa, specifically Nairobi, Kenya. Noting that Nairobi has become “an anchor for those fleeing conflict across the region…and in the process have created one of the continent’s most exciting art scenes,” Einashe speaks to the imagination, boldness, and creative flair that is present in the Eastern region and declares that it is to be “recognized and celebrated.”


We join the recognition and celebration and invite you to experience some of the vibrant representations of East Africa’s thriving art scene through the lens of Ismail Einashe here.
