Back

James Muriuki is an arts practitioner who has primarily used photography and lens-based media in his work. His practice revolves around the transition of society and the development of rapidly evolving urban spaces. Muriuki draws on forms such as architecture and food as visual elements and metaphorical symbols that illustrate human need, capacity, desire and aspiration. He is also interested in investigating the potential of images, video, and sound as mediums and processes of making art and ultimately as knowledge reservoirs and transmission channels.
