Mural Movement of Nairobi Begins


We are partnering with local artists, Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS), the Safer Nairobi Initiative, the Nairobi City Council, and the GoDown Arts Centre to launch an art movement to beautify Nairobi with colorful murals to showcase the vibrancy and creativity of the city. The partners are calling the movement #ALAAA! – the sound of astonishment that people will make when they come across the amazing works of art around the city.

The partners have a vision of creating a city full of murals that explore artistic experimentation and expression that connect to people’s hearts and where artists and the public feel that they are part of something that will positively change the city. The partners are working towards Nairobi becoming known internationally for its beautiful murals and public art and for the art to be a source of pride for all Nairobians.

The #ALAAA! mural movement started with a mural created on Saturday, 8 May 2021, and Sunday, 9 May 2021 on the Moi Avenue Primary School perimeter wall on the globe roundabout side. The theme of the piece is the art and vitality of the streets of Nairobi and feature work by artists Allan “Think” Kioko, Michael Nyerere, Solomon “Solo” Luvai, Rose Ahono, Collins Odour, Leevans Linyerere, and Wilson Matunda. Here are some pictures…
