Agnes Waruguru b. (Nairobi, KE 1994)
Waruguru’s work ranges from painting, drawing, printmaking, needlework and installation. The materiality of objects in space is at the core of my explorations, which are intimately rooted in personal identity politics, often referencing women’s practices and traditional cultural identifiers. Waruguru received a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design, USA. Her work has been exhibited in America, France, South Africa and Kenya. She has participated in residencies in Kenya and Sydney, Australia and recently took part in the Saba Artists Residency in Lamu. Waruguru participated in the inaugural edition of the Stellenbosch Triennale, South Africa, 2020. She currently lives and works in Nairobi, Kenya.
