Kamondia-and-Todd

Andrew Kamondia and Todd at the former Unik Gallery in Nairobi, Kenya

I have been a Kamondia fan for years, and have given away many of his paintings as gifts to friends and family. Like Juma, they seem to express the epitome of ‘African art’ – being lively, colorful and expressive.

Andrew Kamondia was born in Kiahuria, Kenya, in 1956, and currently lives in Wangige, Kenya. He attended Ndunyu Primary School where he developed his interest in art, painting his impressions of daily life for fun. As a student he entered many exhibitions and competitions to hone his style. However it was after his formal education, when he found himself tending to his mother’s farm, that he developed his present style.

Kamondia’s first commercial painting took him two months and ten days to complete, it was of a market scene – today he is very prolific and many of his paintings can be found in the galleries of Nairobi, making it seem as though he paints much faster…
