Alfajiri (Swahili for sunrise) organization is proud to present artwork created by upcoming creative artists on the path to greatness. These individual and unique young artists are creating artworks that indeed heal and touch the soul. The artists paint together in the grounds of a beautiful former monastery, in Nairobi once the community of Taize from France.
The founder of Alfajiri, Lenore Boyd a sculptor, originated from a family of five generations of artists in Australia. She brought her love and experience of art to the ghetto where the talents of truly gifted people of Africa have been mentored and nurtured with wonderful and surprising results.
The quality, beauty and pathos of their work is worthy of any gallery and country in the world and discovery of these talents is and will be a gift to Kenya and the world.
“Today they have as much potential as any other artist… and possibly more because of their experiences in life. Their paintings show the beauty of life and the worst because artists work from emotions that run deep.” Gavulu, One Off Art Gallery, Nairobi, Kenya, Africa
