Another African Inspiration-Wangechi Mutu.

Wangechi Mutu was born in 1972 in Nairobi, Kenya. Here work reminds me so much of Ofili’s paintings.

  • I like the fact that she talks about the objectification of women in both Western and African art. (Both through the lens of a western male camera.)
  • I LOVE that she uses soil in some of her pieces.
  • She makes amazing collages using photos, ink, oil and anything that she can.
