Gakunju Kaigwa is a Kenyan Sculptor with a Master’s degree in public art from the University of Dundee in Scotland. Although he began his career painting, Kaigwa discovered his real passion in the early 80’s as a sculptor. He works with wood, glass, steel, resin, bronze and many other materials using each medium to express different ideas and forms. Most of Kaigwa sculptures are figurative and envision the human body.He likes to portray human conditions, and in some of his works you can detect a “commentary” note; the works are not meant to be critical but are intended to evoke thought and emotion from the viewer. Kaigwa work may be found installed in a number of public spaces both around Kenya and internationally. Kaigwa has his studio at the Kuona Trust Art Center, Nairobi.
