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.
