Beatrice Wanjiku

Beatrice Wanjiku,(b 1978) canvases and works on paper constantly probe the human condition, delving into psychological issues and repeatedly questioning our reality and the space we occupy. informed by her environment and society’s perceptions that surround her, Wanjiku’s practice scratches away at the superficial images we project in daily life.

The plight of lions in the wild. How they’re susceptible to injury during hunts and fighting for territory.

This Lion is part of The Global Pride sculpture trail.
