Michael Soi is an artist living and working in Nairobi. His paintings are a reflection of life in the city as well as an unflinching commentary on Kenyan society and politics.
“I dwell on issues that a lot of artists will choose not to address . . . I talk about corruption and commercial sex work. Kenyan society is one that loves to bury its head in the sand.” 1
“A cat has a lot in common with a politician. When it’s hungry it’ll come and rub up against you, and then the rest of the day it just sits there.” 2
