Who is Mutua?
I, Mutua Matheka are artist born and bred in Machakos and fine tuned by Nairobi, I draw, sketche, mold stuff, destroy stuff & occasionally create stuff…. I have been drawing and sketching since my mother placed crayons in my hands at just 3 years of age. The art has since then morphed from Drawing, Illustration, Graphic art, Architectural Visualization to Photography, my latest obsession. When I’m not meeting a deadline or sharpening crayons, I love to get my adrenaline pounding by riding motorbikes, mountain climbing, and (if I got a chance) para troop and ski. I am a graduate Architect from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture & Technology(J.K.U.A.T) masquerading as an Interior designer with Image 360 designs and moonlighting as a photographer.
I credit my creativity to The Creator who is the number one creative in my books, and my mom for the 3yr old crayon awakening. Also, i’m happily married to a beautiful woman who also doubles as a personal model.
My long term plan is to ride all around rural Kenya teaching kids art and taking photographs to document and showcase my beautiful home, Kenya.
I have been featured in Nokia’s ‘Teddy Bears & Talking drums’, a documentary (view here), ADA (African Digital Art), Afri-Love (Afri-love.com), Kiss 100’s Breakfast show with Caroline Mutoko, Zuqka magazine (Nation newspaper) & Eve bridal (Pull-out in the Standard newspaper).
I have had the privilege of working with; Image 360 designs | Radio Jambo | Kiota Guest house | Exotic Golf Safaris | UP Magazine | Kobo Safaris and artists like; Daddy Owen | Bupe | Anto Neosoul | Neema | Ruth Wamuyu | Kevo Juice | Five.Oh.One | Dj MO | Monique | Ma3 band | Sara Mitaru,among many other amazing people.
