  • About the Artist
Evans Mbugua was born in Nairobi, he live in Paris, both modern and cosmopolitan cities that are characterized by the cultural mix of divers populations. No matter which creative tool Evans choose to express himself, man is at the heart of his artistic approach. "Each one of us has his own story to tell. I paint, take photographs and film: hope, joy, zest for life, love, pleasure, sharing, presence, a shout, pride, silence, emotions, time, the future … I portray my life, that of my friends and strangers. In this way, diversity nourishes my curiosity of the world. I take a look at our identities and their hidden facets. I favour portraits to celebrate my characters. I use glass and perspex to beautify my subjects by shine and reflections, while underlining human frailty. In my work, pictograms represent our urban environment which shapes, rhythms our life and which, in turn, becomes my playground."
