Kivuthi Mbuno was a game tracker from rural Makueni district who settled in Langata near old failed coffee farm Karen Blixen (Isak Dineson). He worked for the American photographer Peter Beard, among others and was clearly influenced by the drawings of Blixen’s old cook, Kamante Gatura. His surreal colored pencil drawings depict the rural tribal world of his childhood.
