Joseph Thiongo

Profile

Country: Kenya

Style: Semi surreal, Landscape,

Medium: Watercolour and Ink, Acrylics

Fun Fact: his artistic skills were recognized by his Geography teacher, after being impressed by his map drawing skills. His teacher said,  “Joseph, I hope you will be an artist”. And this is something he never forgot

Quote: “I observe my environment everywhere I am for ideas and inspiration for my artwork.  I also get structural ideas of wildlife figures and their environment from actual wildlife parks.  When I am in Nairobi and can’t get to the parks to paint, I have a collection of books and DVD’s that feature angles of what wildlife and landscapes Kenya has.”
