Paintings by Kaloki Nyamai are characterized by intricate layers. While his figurative motifs are recognizable, each image is utterly unique. His portraits involve acrylic paint, sisal rope, photo transfers, and yarn. Overall, Nyamai infuses canvases with narrative and physical weight. His compositions, at times framed and others suspended or un-stretched, explore the tradition of painting as a medium for storytelling.
