Kabiru is a visual artist based in Nairobi. I am fascinated by his work because he uses junk to create his sculptures. Known mostly for his avant-garde eyewear, the C-Stunners. His paintings represent contemporary living in Kenya. He uses art as an output for his experiences. Bonhams – a London art house – is selling TED fellow Kabiru’s work to raise money for visual arts education in Kenya. I think he is an artistic genius.
