Frederick Abuga was born in 1982 in Nairobi, Kenya. He graduated with a Diploma in Fine Art from the, Buruburu Institute of Fine Art (BIFA), Nairobi, Kenya. Abuga adopts a unique style, with a mix of brush strokes that consist of solid colors that create an image which is not immediately clear to the viewer. His creations are influenced by colour, nature and people and he often uses the busy chaotic market places as his subject, especially since he feels this is where a lot of different colours come together and interact. The message of the paintings is to bring out the relation between colours and make the image more memorable. The intention of Abuga’s work is to play with reasoning and make people think bigger thoughts.
