Cyrus Kabiru was born in Nairobi in 1984, where he still lives and works. He is a multidisciplinary self-taught visual artist. His work oscillates between painting and sculpture, which he creates using rubbish and objects found in the streets of Nairobi.
His series of sculptural glasses, C-Stunners, caught the attention of the art and design world in 2011. Since this last series, Cyrus Kabiru has kept pushing the boundaries of sculpture, design, painting and photography.
He has participated in numerous festivals, solo and group exhibitions, notably in South Africa. He is part of the “Kuona Trust,” a visual art center based in Nairobi, and has participated in numerous initiatives with local communities.

As you know, the Coronavirus is spreading worldwide. After Asia, Europe and the American continent, the African continent sees the Covid19 epidemic coming with great concern, given the limited health infrastructures available in some countries.
All the AAD teams wish to give their warm support to the artists, professionals, partners and volunteers involved in our projects throughout Africa.
We have preventively taken the decision to temporarily suspend all our activities in the field in order to participate in the security of all and to try stop the spread of the virus on the continent.
As we know today, the speed of implementation of measures to protect people on a collective scale is critical in the future fight against the impact of this virus.
