Prompted by the increased international recognition of our Kenyan artists’ artwork, Prokraft Africa embarks on a journey to celebrate local talent by holding its first art exhibition: “Gravity,” a joint digital art exhibition by its talent from July 30th – August 14th 2015 at Blue Violets Plaza, Nairobi, Kenya.

The exhibition will feature the works by Jeffrey Otieno, Joe Makeni, Mutua Matheka, Thandiwe Muriu, and Osborne Macharia.For its first edition, Prokraft has challenged the artists to create a minimum 5 pieces each, defining “Black” from their perspective.

What is Black?

“Black” is often thought as despondent; because we are told that black is melancholic and synonymous with being immersed in a hopeless state. We have to know that black is amorphous. The darkened condition that welcomes the light, the blank slate and from which we draw our creativity.
