Peter Nyanjui Mburu, A Kenyan Artist

My name is Peter Nyanjui Mburu, a Kenyan artist in most media. I started my artistic works in 1996 by creating small objects artistic wise with Porcupine quills to make Necklaces. The same year I was carving and participated in a group exhibition at Gallery Watatu 1997 group exhibition at the National Museum of Kenya.  In 2010 in the National Museum of Kenya History Gallery,  I installed a commissioned life size Train Engine sculpture.  The sculpture relates to the Man Eaters of Tsavo and the historical railway construction in Uganda Kenya Railway line.
