I am not tethered to any art school or art movement. But My experience and interest are in studying works abstract. Abstract expressionism and graffiti from artists such as Ed Ruscha. Gerhard Richter. Jean Honoré Fragonard, Patrick Mukabi, and Peterson Kamwathi have led me to create my style and techniques. I use various mediums to tell my stories. But mainly use acrylic paint, aerosol spray paint, pastels, and charcoal to draw and paint on various surfaces. With an emphasis on color and language visible in bold and bright colors, faint text captioning and blurred motion effects are repeated in my artworks.
My art exposes abstract feelings drawn from daily life experiences by visualizing human strength and its diversions. As expressed through people’s body and face movement in the workplace space and outside of work. This combines with an abstract landscape environment that let you think of the idea of landscapes in the natural and artificial world environment.
My name is Harrison Karanja Kiuru, professionally known as SCOPT. I was born in 1985, in Limuru, Kenya. When I was a child, I enjoyed sketching on any surface that I found. Over the years, I have grown to appreciate making visual art. Through experiments, making street art and other contemporary art forms, and working with other artists in Kenya. In the early 2000s, I was doing street art in the streets of Nairobi as a graffiti writer with the tag name Scoptah. Along the way between the years 2007 and 2010, I got an opportunity to participate as one of the visual artists at the WAPI shows and competitions. Which was one of the British Council Arts Programs.
Artist Name: Harrison Karanja Kiuru.
