Shabu Mwangi was born in 1985 and began practicing in art in 2003. He lives and works in the Mukuru slum, Nairobi where he established the Wajukuu Art Project in 2013. He’s is deeply convicted to his work, in which he highlights the life of disadvantaged minorities in his community. Deeply concerned by society’s inequality and our lack of empathy for people with a different social, political, ethnic or religious background, his work seeks to examine human behavior and our collective amnesia. He has worked with art2be and Hope Worldwide and had several exhibitions including Pop-Up Africa, 2014, GAFRA, London; Out of the Slum, 2012 Essen, Germany, as well as various group and solo exhibitions in Nairobi.
