M2 Artists

Maasai Mbili Artists’ Collective is a leading East African contemporary arts organization begun in 2001 by Otieno Gomba and Otieno Kota. The studio now comprises about a dozen main members, students, interns, and visiting residence artists. The artists make and exhibit contemporary art, public art, children’s art programs, music production and performance, street fashion, immersive and interactive multimedia programs, and animations. Sometimes the membership of the studio expands exponentially especially during collaborations with the community. Through projects, workshops, and exhibitions, Maasai Mbili has become an important link between the Kibera community and the outside world.
