In June 2009, I spent a month in Kenya with my friend Mercy, who was the model for my poster design on the right. Mercy is working on her PhD in reportage drawing, so I joined her for a month of intensive painting and drawing, mostly in Kisumu on the shore of Lake Victoria.
Together Mercy and I had an exhibition in association with the Manama SIngers concert of the "African Sanctus", showing our work in the foyer of the the concert hall on the night of the performance.
Then the show moved to the SraArts Space at the Sar Music Centre, the inaugural exhibition in this new alternative arts space!
