|made me smile right away, it was by Clavers|
So I decided to go to the Kenya Art Fair. The alternative would have been to walk round Karura forest until I dropped, but it rained all morning.
I'm looking at John Silver's paintings; An animal that could be a goat or a zebra with the neck of a giraffe..
"Come to my studio and you'll get even more disturbed."
He says, when he sees the kind of faces I am making at his art.
He is a talker, pleasant guy. He was lecturing a fellow young artist, a girl.
"Ee, wanasema hivyo."
"Hii marangi ndiyo inanilisha, na mimi ndiye nasaidia mamangu hata zaidi.
Stick to your art, kama una kipawa, ni mungu ameweka ndani yako. Let them sing, you learn the chorus and help them sing, or dance to it."
|John Silver: I'm an artist, no apologies.|
All the restlessness of a few weeks, lots of writing but the struggle; should I post this?
