From The Slums of Nairobi

Discovered in 2013, The Art Boyz are a group of youths who have been painting together as a way of life to divert from the hardships of living in the slum of Mukuru, Nairobi.

Their art was brought to the U.S. and shown to interested art lovers. Two pieces sold for $3100 and $3200USD. Their first exhibit was in Telluride, Colorado in 2015 where pieces sold from $250 to $2500USD. In the website gallery all prices are suggested, the shopping cart allows you to input your own price. We do this for a reason; Art is to be enjoyed by all income levels. Make your offer according to your ability and we'll get back to you with a response.

A documentary film was created about the artists with the goal of sharing their hardships and how art transforms the human spirit regardless of living conditions. Their talents have been hidden from the world, and now are being appreciated by audiences around the world. 

"Art is created best in the depths of chaos."                  -Dustin, Poet from Colorado.  
"To own a piece is to validate their struggle."                 -Anonymous collector.
