Cyrus Kabiru was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya where he currently lives and works as an artist. He is a self-taught multi-disciplinary artist who works with found objects in his sculptural work. His paintings show life in Nairobi with wit and charm, depicting figures with bulging eyes satirising the everyday experiences of an important African capital city. Kabiru sits at the forefront of a generation of artists whose innovation and creativity is shaping the way in which not only art from Africa is viewed but Africa itself, as the work travels across borders challenging perceptions and stereotypes. Kabiru’s work has caught the imagination of the art world both within Africa and internationally.

Working with found objects his sculpture is built on the notion of, in Kabiru’s own words, ‘giving trash a second chance.’ Weaving together materials such as bottle tops, shoe polish tins, wire and cutlery he is most well-known for his series of wearable eyewear sculpture, C-STUNNERS.

Kabiru has a strong commitment to working with local communities in Kenya teaching people about environmental sustainability through the running of his workshops ‘Outreach’. Kabiru’s Outreach programme is his own self-funded initiative which involves the organisation of month long workshops, often in remote areas where he teaches and inspires people to create art out of materials, often rubbish, found in the surrounding environment. Kabiru has become a powerful role model for Kenyan youth from the slums and all walks of life.

Kabiru became a TED Fellow in 2013
