UHAI Illustrations

Here’s a glimpse at some illustration work I did for UHAI-EASHRI, a Sexual Health and Rights Initiative based in Nairobi.

The artwork was created for a report on a “Changing Faces Changing Spaces” conference held in Naivasha. The use of the khanga style of art to create these illustrations was inspired by the dominant presence of the fabrics during the conference, and also by the fact that this was the first time they were having a pan African conference as they had only focussed on Eastern Africa up until then. I chose to create only khanga motifs of the work and not whole designs so as to keep the focus on the visual message contained in the illustrations and not have it attenuated by the designs’ borders.
