Tom Mboya

Tom is a Kenyan born artist based at the Go Down Arts Center in Nairobi, Kenya.

Although hotelier by profession he has spent most of his lifetime drawing and painting. He had a great opportunity in his high school life to study technical drawing and design, later he joined Hospitality College, and he served in the hospitality industry for eight years before he fell out to settle on visual art and painting. He is passionate about painting and his work revolves around the social life of human, animal and the beautiful nature shared among them.

His style is a cocktail of expressionism, impressionism and semi-realistic forms of human, nature, animal and nature done in warm acrylics or oil colors and sound brush strokes.

Tom has participated in several art exhibitions both locally and internationally. Apart from the financial gains, he has donated his art pieces and participated in discharging innovative ideas and mentoring spirit to schools which cater for children with special needs.
