Poster: Beatport by Dennis Muraguri

Hop on!  In Kenya, matatus are the main form of public transportation, and matatu culture is a vibrant reflection of the here and now--including everything from music to the iconographic art decorating the side panels, as well as the "mastingo" or "stunts" performed off the side. These very special, signed digital reproductions of original woodcut prints are a colorful and eye-catching addition to any space.
This print depicts the side of the Beatport matatu, which used to run the Ongata Rongai route in southwest Nairobi.  According to the artist, "I like it because of the action around it, as well as the imagery and clothing you see:  for example, there's one guy wearing a hat with the flag of England, so it's all these contradictory, unrelated things that come together in a sort of rhythm, relating back to the idea of music."
This is a digital reproduction of a woodcut print that was made using a reduction process. In this technique, a single block of wood is used, with each layer of color subsequently cut away after the previous layer is printed, such that the final woodcut can never be used to reproduce the same design.
