Highlighted Artist: Wangechi Mutu

Today I’m highlighting an important artist on my blog. I recently came across her art works on the internet and decided to highlight her incredible work on here. Not only is her art work marvelous but she’s also a fellow African woman. Wangechi Mutu was born in Nairobi, Kenya and exhibited her art work all across Europe and the United States. She is also an activist and recently launched her campaign, Africa’s out, which is an initiative that fights for Africa’s LGBTQ population. She is simply a brilliant and passionate woman, and I plan to check out her art studio when I go to Brooklyn, New York in a few weeks. Check out her website here: http://wangechimutu.com/.
