Street Art, italian artist meet kenyans in Nairobi, Malindi

Italian Embassy in Kenya Contemporary Art days

15-10-2019 by Freddie del Curatolo

Italian conceptual artist Mattia Campo Dall'Orto and photographer Mara Fella are busy this week between Nairobi and Malindi as part of the International Day of Contemporary Art, which has been taking place in Kenya for years with an exchange of expressions, techniques and opinions between local talent and artists of our country.
This year the protagonist is the "street art" of which Campo Dall'Orto, painter and graffiter from Trieste, is one of the greatest exponents in Italy. The artist has colored with his works walls and buildings in various parts of the world, including problems such as Kosovo, Turkey and Serbia, as well as in Russia, Albania, Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Germany, Georgia, Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Spain, as well as within national borders. Today he will be at the Art Cabinet Gallery in Lavington, Nairobi, for a meeting with two street artists from the Kenyan capital, Bankslave and Msale, on the theme of urban art as a tool for the protection of the environment and raising awareness of the issues that afflict Nature.
On Thursday 17th October in Malindi Campo Dall'Orto and Mara Fella will be in Malindi where in just one day they will set up a significant mural in the slum of Kisumundogo together with young people. Some local artists will take part in the event.
Campo Dall'Orto and Kimani will perform on one of the walls of Kisumundogo producing a work on the theme of the environment. The day will be documented by photos and videos by the Italian association Macross as part of the program "Italy Cultures Africa" managed by the Italian Institute of Culture in Nairobi. The Malindi Blue And Green Movement of which Malindikenya.net is the promoter participates in the organization of the event and will keep you updated on the initiative of great value not only symbolic, but also educational and awareness-raising for young people in particular of the suburbs of Malindi.
