Bankslave is a Kenyan graffiti artist, activist and a member of the spray uzi crew with most of his paintings seen in Nairobi and some parts of Europe. He started out painting on canvas before he progressed to spray cans.
During the 2007 election campaign, in collaboration with some artists, they used art to speak to the people. They used it as a medium to bring to the consciousness of people the wrong doings of politicians and the need for them to make the right decision.
In his words; Artists who do contemporary painting often criticize graffiti. They say it isn’t art. To them, we are rivals.
