Paul Onditi

Born in Kenya in 1980, Paul Onditi moved to Germany in 2000, where he studied art at The Hochschule Für Gestaltung in Offenbach Am Main. In 2010 he returned to Nairobi, where he is currently living and painting. He is part of a generation of young African artists working on the Continent whose engagement with contemporary art is rapidly gaining international attention.

The piece reflects the growing impact and challenge of human wildlife conflict faced by communities living alongside national parks.

This Lion is part of The London Pride sculpture trail.
