Maggie Otieno

Nairobi, Kenya

I am a Kenyan sculptor based in Nairobi. I work in various materials in both 2D and 3D. My career currently spans 24 years. Practicing as a full time artist at my studio, I have taken part in numerous exhibitions, workshops and residencies in Kenya, East African region, Algeria, Nigeria, Netherlands, USA, Egypt and UK.

I allow myself to be inspired by anything and everything. I use these inspirations to speak to the audience in a language that can be used to interpret my work. I occasionally allow my pieces to dictate to me through their unique materials, shapes and forms. I create out of passion and need to physically translate the voices and ideas in my head to real, tangible art forms.
