My Drop‑Ins

"During my Meister Drop-In sessions I would like to invite you to my world, where I will be revealing certain facets of my life as an international street artist. We can chat and have a simple or an in depth Q and A quenching your curiosity about street art, tips and tricks to survive and thrive in this business of mural painting, also coupled with interesting insights from all my travels to various cities, worldwide. Coming from Kenya, it has a very unique mural culture, so in regards to that I will bring forth art treasures (knowledge and unique insights) of more than 15 years plus of muralism, the culture, and the artform, from conversations related to proper hardcore muralism in impoverished neighborhoods to more commercial spaces and how I usually find the perfect balance to achieve this great synergy between the space and the Mural.
