Born in Kenya in 1987, Maina Boniface is one of Kenya's fast rising emerging artist living and working in Nairobi- Kenya. He attended junior school and high school in the same town. In 2006, he attended YMCA Training Institute-Nairobi to study Art and Design where he graduated with a diploma. Maina gained interest in drawing and painting with acrylics being his favorite medium for painting. He is inspired by human reactions and his daily encounters which he shows with his surrealistic figures. Maina is currently experimenting with a combination of abstract and surrealism. With a touch of imagination, he says, he gets to express humanity in an extra-ordinary way and this is evident in his subjects.
Maina is founding member of BRUSH TU ART STUDIO and DISCOVERED ARTISTIC TALENTS (DArTs). He is represented by Diani Beach Art Gallery and Gallery Glocal Art.
