Tomasi women goes to Nairobi

"I saw africa woman" exhibition at Mawimbi

10-12-2020 by redazione

Gian Paolo Tomasi's imaginative and imaginary African women conquer a space among the most frequented and up-and-coming in Nairobi. 
Tonight the art gallery inside the Capital's Mawimbi Seafood Restaurant & Cafè (Longonot Place, Kijabe Street) opens.
Tomasi, a photo-composition genius who spends several months of the year in Kenya, whose works are now known and appreciated all over the country, as well as in Italy, in this solo show inaugurated two years ago in Malindi, has reinvented African female figures, extracting them from traditional inconography and adding to their natural beauty the colours, the clothes and the spirituality that the reality of this continent transmits and that the troubled lives of so many women often reveal but even more often hide behind a great, innate dignity.
He has often depicted them with animals of the savannah at their side, or "contaminated" by a sort of fusion that embraces Chinese economic imperialism and African internationalism.
An exhibition to (re)see for those who live in Kenya and certainly to discover for many fans of Nairobi and its surroundings.
