Cyrus Kabiru currently practices in Nairobi. He is a self taught painter and sculptor. His paintings are often humorous portrayals of contemporary living within Kenya. Kabiru adopts the role of a flâneur, the observer, explorer, and lounger using his paintings as the output for his experiences. His sculptural work embodies his role as a “collector” of Nairobi cast offs. Kabiru fashions and refashions these waste, recycled, and found materials into various forms. Currently he is focusing on a series that depicts African nature using thousands of bottle caps sewn together.
