Paul Onditi

Paul Onditi’s richly layered paintings may invoke a sense of uneasiness in the viewers’ eyes. He is a master of visually creating imaginary worlds, placing figures into a meticulously fragmented space, in which there seems to be no beginning and no end.

Born in Kenya in 1980, Paul Onditi moved to Germany in 2000, where he studied art at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach am Main. In 2010 he returned to Nairobi, where he is currently living and practicing.  Exhibitions include African Metropolis. An Imaginary City, Rome (2018), 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair, London (2018), Shifting Backgrounds, 50 Golborne, London (2018), Dak’Art Biennale, Senegal (2018), and VOLTA New York (2017).
