A girl like me

February 5, 2019 @ 8:00 am - February 24, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

Anne Gichuku is a self-taught digital artist who with the help of friends and good old youtube continues to grow her art. She won in the ‘Digital Art’ category at the inaugural Sondeka Awards 2018 organized by Creatives Garage.

Anne describes her style as funky and eclectic. She likes bold colours and bold themes and keeps her influences culturally relevant.

She dedicates her first exhibition to girls like her.

‘I have always thought being a girl was a little bit of a fight – everyone seems entitled to an opinion about who you should be – what you wear, what you think, what you say, how much you weigh – It’s exhausting.

Within my work, my ‘femmes’ do whatever the heck they want.

They can be goofy, they can be naked, they can be vulnerable, they can like weird things, they can be green, or blue, they can be loud… they can be girls.’
