"Sane" Mbugua Wadu was a primary school teacher who appeared at Gallery Watatu “wearing an improbable canvas suit he had painted himself and carrying shopping bags containing rolled up pictures” showing his wry view of Kenyan life. His friends called him insane, but when he had his first successful show at Watatu he responded by giving himself the nomme de guerre “Sane”.
