Evans Yegon, (known in art circles as Yegonizer) is one of those that were deeply disappointed when art was struck from the 8-4-4 syllabus. Art was his favourite lesson; he especially enjoyed drawing. Art too wasn’t offered at the secondary school he went to. After high school, and with more freedom and time in his hands, Yegon began visiting museums, interacting with artists and practising his art. Like most artists, his inspiration comes largely from what he takes in. For example, the gospel has a big part in his life and several of his artistic influences spring from here. Yegon’s most recent exhibition at the National Museums of Kenya was anchored on the walk of Jesus on earth.
