About the artist
Kevin Oduor – the artist behind the statue of Dedan Kimathi in Nairobi’s CBD has over twenty years experience as a sculptor. He started off as a painter after high school, his love for art was inflamed when he met the late Ruth Schaffner of Gallery Watatu, who mentored him to the world of art. Twenty years on Kevin has become a mentor of note himself.
Kevin draws inspiration from human nature and from throughout the animal kingdom. He would like to give people the opportunity to see nature as he perceives it.
Kevin has done numerous commissions and has had several successful international works; one of the most recent being in Saragossa in Spain. Other pieces as he puts ‘are all over’ he recalls fondly a life size buffalo in the MeruNational Park, a commission to commemorate the eradication of a disease epidemic that had been attacking cows and buffalos.
He uses fiber glass, metal and found objects having initially started his career working in clay.
