My name is John Maina, reside in Thika but grew up in Nairobi, Eastlands. While in primary school that’s where my passion for art began. Although we never had art classes, I was just interested in creating art a lot. During that time, some of my friends said I was doing a nice job and that encouraged me a lot. I kept creating but when I joined high school, I was never interested in doing art. This is because I never drew anything on paper. That went on until I completed my high school time. And then joined college where I pursued a diploma in mechanical engineering. But in my second year of schooling, that’s where my interest in creating came back and took over and from now on, I’ve been creating ever since.
It has been an exciting journey for me personally. Mostly I like to create from what surrounds me and the normal lives of people, how they interact with each other daily, and try to put that on canvas.
