Original artwork

Edition 1 of 1

Paint on repurposed London bus panel 

Dancan Olunga (age 15)

The Wajukuu children are incredible, hilarious and full of spirit. Over the weekend workshop they flitted between two states: intently focused on their paintings or bouncing off of the walls, doing little dances and singing songs. They became great friends and in them I see bright futures.

This panel was painted by Dancan Olunga. It is 30 x 44cm, and made of acrylic on aluminium. The sale of this painting will go directly toward the Wajukuu Art Project of Nairobi, Kenya.

Olunga is a reserved, but incredibly talented young painter. In the workshop he had quite the audience enthralled in his every brush stroke. He’s been with Wajukuu for 6 years and has painted the ritual of collecting water, a difficult task of carrying jerry cans to communal water sources. The yellow water containers are a poetic symbol for the culture which has been wonderfully captured in this painting.
