Michael Kyalo is a Kenyan artist. That specializes in painting and sculpture with an illustrious 7-year career. Currently, he is an artist in resident at the GoDown Art Centre. He specializes in paintings. His keen focus is on current issues on how he sees and understands the environment in terms of ideas and color forms thus presenting it in a bit of impression form.
Mike is inspired by day to day socio-economic activities affecting people especially men and change of weather. In men am interested in the body language, the composition and the seriousness that comes out during their work thus extracting both positive and negative values in them which are hidden in the figure tips of the society by the society.
He has worked in dry pastels, oil, acrylic, chalk and charcoal on paper, cardboard and canvas.
