Michael Soi

Michael W. Soi (b. 1972) is a Nairobi-based artist who launched his practice in 1995 after completion of his studies in fine art and art history. In his work, he tackles current issues in politics, and offers a satirical take on the topics that occupy our public imagination. Soi draws inspiration from contemporary life in Nairobi. His work can be read as a kind photographic diary of Nairobi, offering commentary on social, economic and political trends. He delves into relationships, or what he generally calls the economics of love, the corrupting effects of power, and popular culture within the context of globalization & consumerism. Soi follows in a tradition of Kenyan cartoonists who have continually poked fun at the establishment. He has developed is a distinct visual language that combines bold lines and and bright colours to create illustrative compositions that are playful and biting at the same time.
