#5 Kenyan Arts

The Treasure of Kenyan Arts forms an infinite source of inspiration, invention, beauty and business. Kenya has produced a long list of world-class artistic talents in music, dance, writing, painting, sculpturing, fashion design, performance art, theater, film making and photography. Nairobi has become home to a dynamic African artists scene which lures creative minds from far beyond the national borders, displaying their work in museums and private galleries across the capital. But Kenyan artistic skills and creativity also express themselves through typical textiles, such as kanga, leso and vitenges, outstanding jewelry and other handicrafts, as well as the jua kali sector with its flexible and innovative roadside businesses all over the country.
