Ruth Mwende Mutisya has quickly become a rising star in the Kenyan Art Scene. Ruth was born and raised in Nairobi Kenya. “I’ve always loved art as long as I could remember” says Ruth. Ruth began painting at the age of 5 and enjoyed abstract art.
In Ruth’s paintings, one can see the intense colors that are so characteristic of her work – deep browns, oranges, and blues. The surfaces of her paintings are often textured, with various layers of paint built up to create interesting visual effects.

Ruth’s paintings have a vitality and freshness that is very appealing. Her use of color and texture creates an interesting surface that draws the viewer in. And her abstract subjects are full of life, offering a glimpse into another culture for those who are not familiar with it.
