ART AND ENVIRONMENT

A month of art and recycling in Diani

Kenyan artists exhibition at The Sands At Nomad

In celebration of Global Recycling Day, which takes place on Friday, March 18, 2022, The Sands at Nomad in Diani will be opening an art exhibition dedicated to Kenyan artists who use recycled materials in their work.
The exhibit, which will be on view through April 18, is not only a fantastic opportunity to promote some of the wonderful creative talent we are fortunate to have in Kenya, but also helps to highlight the ongoing impact and efforts everyone should put forth to help protect the fragile environment so many care about and seek to preserve.
The works in the exhibit allowed artists to give new life to many things that had been discarded by others and help showcase and promote the beauty of the world we live in.
Among the artists featured in the exhibition are Richard Njogu Kuria, Adam Masava, Kepha Mosoti, Joanne Otieno, Solomon Macharia Powel, Mika Obanda and Isaiah Malunga. These are really interesting artists and many of them come from the slums of Nairobi and from situations where recycling is also a way to give dignity to those who collect materials in the city's dumps and raise public awareness. Personally, we were able to admire the works of Adam Masava, born and raised in the slum of Mukuru Kwa Njenga, one of the poorest and least "advertised" in the capital. Adam paints on scrap metal, often rusty, and with his bright colors he illuminates stories of Kenyans, from children playing soccer to those who live on casual labor, to mothers and the elderly. The other artists are also worthy, for a group exhibition that is unprecedented on the Kenyan coast.
This event confirms the Sands Group's vocation to support environmental initiatives throughout Diani. Nomad in particular is very active in sea turtle conservation, constantly and fundamentally helping the organization "Diani Turtle Watch" and the Colobus Conservation founded by Luciana Parazzi Basile.
