Pascal Chuma

Artist Statement:

          Born in Kenya, Pascal Chuma realized his passion for art started when he was five years old, that was when he discovered art was his first language. This led him to study art at the Buruburu Institute of Fine Arts. He became a full-time painter in 2010. He paints in a wide diversity of styles from, Cubism, Expressionism, Mixed Media intergrated collage and his invented and now famous Chumaism Style. His masterpiece contemporary paintings are inspired by the environment he lives in, its conservation, dreams and the female forms. Having tried different techniques during his career, he fell in love with painting using oil, acrylic and palette knife. Each artwork is a result of a long painting process with each canvas being born during the creative search. Every painting is the expression of his inner world of peace. Each of his artworks brings out different moods, colour, emotions, relations to socio-political levels and our African Culture. His works are an expression of the beauty, harmony and spirit of both his inner and outer worlds. His artworks reflect his feelings, sensitivity, passion, and the music from his soul. To Pascal, art is alive and inspired by humanity as a basic need. The flickering network of colours in his paintings has attracted the audience both from local and international spheres.



          Pascal is the founder and also a teacher at Bobea Art Centre Kenya, which he founded to nurture young artists and empower them to earn an income through their creativity and express themselves. His vision is to see that most talented children and youth get skills and free supplies since many parents with such gifted children are unable to provide them with the same and art as a subject has since been scrapped from the school syllabus in Kenya. He also intends to expand the Gallery to market them appropriately.

          Please visit the Bobea Art Centre website to learn more and help support Kenyan artists! Pascal has helped his community in various ways raisings funds with his artwork for hunger stricken Kenyans, children's homes and for children who do not have the opportunity to go to school. Plus his artwork rocks!
