Sometimes this blog is an education for me and helps me to learn more about subjects I want to know more about but never get the time.
Ms. Mutu is a Kenyan woman and a fantastic artist. I discovered her just by googling around, yep, used google as a verb! and was so drawn to her work.
Educated in England, Wangechi Mutu now lives and works in New York though she’s been around the world with her exhibitions.
This Yale graduates amazing works are grotesque and amazing.
If you are anywhere near New York – I implore you to see her work.
“Mutu’s work explores the contradictions of female and cultural identity and makes reference to colonial history, contemporary African politics and the international fashion industry. Drawing from the aesthetics of traditional crafts, science fiction and funkadelia, Mutu’s works document the contemporary myth making of endangered cultural heritage.” – courtesy of artfix.com
