I love art. It doesn’t matter what form it’s in; music, fine art, dance, whatever. I just love it, and when I find something that speaks to me, I want more. That’s how I came across the work of Katanu Kay.
So I was sitting at home, feeding my Pinterest addiction, (yeah, it’s a real thing. I think.) when I came across a pin of a young woman standing beside a painting. The painting was of a lion with a mane made from beautiful African fabric called kitenge. Immediately, I was awestruck. So naturally, I took to Google to find out more about this amazing artist. I was even more impressed to find out that Katanu Kay is a 19 year old student in Kenya. She has over 5,000 followers on instagram, where she shares and sells her breathtaking paintings. Not only does Katanu paint beautiful images, but she also sculpts them. Needless to say, Katanu Kay is definitely an artist to watch out for, and at only 19 years of age, she has nothing but success ahead of her. Go girl go.
