Maina Boniface












  Maina Boniface




Born in Nanyuki town- Kenya in 1987, Boniface Maina is one of Kenya’s fast rising emerging artist. He attended junior school and high school in the same town. In 2006, he relocated to Nairobi city and attended YMCA Training Institute to study Art and Design where he graduated with a diploma. Now living and working in Nairobi, Maina gained interest in drawing and painting with acrylics as his favorite medium. He is inspired by basic human reactions and his daily encounters which he shows with his surrealistic figures. Maina is currently working with a combination of abstract expressionism and surrealism. With a touch of imagination, he says, he gets to express humanity in an extra-ordinary way and this is evident in his subjects.

Maina is founding member of BRUSH TU and DISCOVERED ARTISTIC TALENTS (DArTs). He also is a volunteer artist at ZAWADI ART SOCIETY- a community based art program. Maina is represented by Diani Beach Art Gallery, Kisumu Arts Gallery and Gallery Glocal Art.
